Michelle Obama Wears Lanvin Sneakers

Michelle Obama is receiving much criticism from the press for wearing expensive  Lanvin Leather Sneakers (which retail for $630, but are on sale for $504  at BlueFly.com)  while volunteering at  a Washington D.C.  food bank last week. Michelle was previously praised for her affordable fashion sense.    I do think Michelle is wearing a  J.Crew sweater if that’s any consolation.

Michelle’s haute sneakers, designed by the Paris house of Lanvin in France, are one of the most sought after (and most expensive) currently in the world.   These sneakers  are made of  suede, with grosgrain ribbon laces and metallic pink toe caps, and have been a  hot seller all spring.

Jump Women's Crew - W Sneaker Style No. : 152270

Purple seems to be a favorite color among Mrs. Obama, so I think these Jump Crew W Sneakers, only $69.95 from ShoeMall.com, would have been a more practical choice.
