Michelle Obama Dons Sporty-Chic Sneaks to Volunteer

Michelle Obama’s unique, down-to-earth yet fabulous approach to fashion has shoe lovers around the world drooling.  Last week, she stepped out in a pair of sweet Lanvin sneakers similar to the one shown at right.  (Ms. Obama’s pair, which she wore while volunteering at a food bank in Washington, DC, were grey with a pink toe and slightly less extravagant laces.) While the fashion critics are raving, others have voiced criticism regarding the appropriateness of wearing such expensive shoes to a charity event (a pair of sneaks from the French designer Lanvin usually run over $500). Regardless of how you feel about celebrities and conspicuous wealth, you have to admit that Ms. O is lookin’ good these days.  She’s spawned sites dedicated to following the First Lady’s fashion, including The Cut from the New York Times and Mrs. O, a blog.

Nude-Toned Shoes: Perfect For Summer

In a larger article about the fashion frustrations of professional women across the country, Forbes writer Laura Lipton suggests wearing slacks when it’s just too hot to wear pantyhose.  (After Michelle Obama mentioned on a visit to The View that she “stopped wearing pantyhose a long time ago,” I’m surprised anyone is still stuffing their legs into those sausage casings.) She also mentions common summer faux pas, including scaly skin, poorly maintained toenails, and cracked heels.  Aside from taking care of your feet, Ms. Lipton offers a wonderful tip for summertime footwear fashion:  Nude-Toned Shoes.

I’m not alone in rejoicing that the First Lady is both fashionable and real.

After months of speculation among fashion writers, the Obamas exceeded high style expectations in sleek inaugural ensembles. Over the next four (or eight?) years, Michelle Obama will juggle multiple roles as mom, attorney, first lady, and trend-setter extraordinaire. Knowing the Obamas, she’ll pull it all of with a calm, gracious demeanor. Here at Shoeflyer, we’ll be following the first lady’s foot fashion, and keeping an eye on the catwalks to track her influence.

Get Yer Michelle Obama Fashion Fix

A new president will take office on January 20th with a strong, intelligent, and imminently fashionable lady at his side. Michelle Obama seems confident that she’ll be comfortable in her new role as first lady, which includes influencing the nation’s approach to fashion. (Is that sexist?– I guess not, since Mr. Obama has done his share to influence men’s fashion.)
The Obamas’ “no drama” approach extends to Michelle’s wardrobe, which is sleek, comfortable, and glamorous without being pretentious.
