Michelle Obama’s Kicks Create Drama

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

While volunteering at a Washington D.C. food bank, Michelle Obama came under attack for wearing designer kicks. So what was she supposed to wear? Beat down $10 Payless Keds? Flip the script for more

Michelle Obama sported her normal casual look at a Washington D.C. food bank on April 29, but of course there’s always room for media scrutiny. The $540 Lanvin sneakers she wore with her J.Crew cardigan and capris sent tongues wagging of a “first lady faux pas.”

“They’re shoes,” the First Lady’s reps told reporters, enough said. However, right-winged media alluded to an air of recession insensitivity and claimed her footwear was “certainly not a reflection of the poor economy,” said FOX News’ Noelle Watters.

If this was Cindy McCain, would we be saying the same thing?

  • me (the original)®

    Blah blah blah, how about we investigate what Laura Bush was wearing when she did these sort of events?

    Better yet, how about Sarah Palin’s RNC funded shopping spree for not just her, but her whole family? o_0

    Moving on…

    Everyone is being affected by the recession differently. So now you can’t wear anything expensive in your closet. Gimme a break.

  • ItsLikeWhatever

    Oh, please! So now she shouldn’t buy things she CAN afford? Did it occur to Fox that she’s demonstrating that it is okay-and necessary-to spend money in our current economy? If people don’t buy, the economy won’t improve.

  • Godsdivinegift

    why are they constantly picking on her because of what she wears? the dress she wore at the inaugural ball, the fact that she wears sleeveless dresses, and now her shoes. they hating on her because a beautiful black woman is putting the former most fashionable first lady (jackie o) to shame. haters need to look in the mirror and step their game up. maybe they can learn a thing or two from her!

  • Pisces

    the first lady can wear whatever she pleases. who says she didn’t have these way before her and barack became President and First Lady? i mean seriously, it ain’t like they were broke before…
    and just cause we in a freakin recession ain’t gonna stop me from wearing my fly gear or driving my escalade….all these media outlets don’t have anything negative to say about her so they feel its necessary to nit-pick about some damn clothes and/or shoes….GTFOH!!!!

  • ShavonDenise

    Fox News is soooo WACK!! So they had to point that out? Has anyone ever tried to price Laura Bush’s hush puppies cost? She’s the flyest chick in the game they probably was given to her.

  • nyob

    These fools won’t be happy until Michelle is shopping at K-Mart and then they’ll complain that her clothing is too cheap. They can’t complain about her intellect, her body or her mothering skills, so what else is left but her clothes? Michelle is intelligent enough to ignore these idiots. As long as she continues to think for herself and use her best judgement she will be fine. Must have been a slow news day at FOX.

    White people are dumb.

    So affordable shoes are now taking precedent in the FAKE (a.k.a. FOX) Newsroom over the H1N1 catastrophe and the economy? *Yawn* This is not news, it’s just yet another diversion by a racially skewed news broadcaster to drive people’s attention away from the REAL issues because the bulk of their viewing base (The Rethuglicans) is in a shambles. Stop hating, FOX News, and get your own ish in order!!!

  • Chocolate Thunder

    LAst time I checked her hubby made $4Milli last year and is the President of the MF Richest Country in the World.

    They can get deez nuts.

  • Natalie

    Because Michelle Obama is a black woman who is tall, in shape and beautiful she unfortunently will be critizied for everything she wears. Who gives a damn how much her shoes cost…if you got the money why should you lower yourself b/c others are struggling due to the economy. Treat yourself if you got the money. Who cares what others think. Fox Haters.

  • Justice for all

    Recession or not the Obamas aren’t poor. And I am sure people that are not poor are still able to buy their designer clothes regardless of the recession.

    I LOVE THE OBAMAS!!!!!!

  • DC

    Fox News aka “I wouldn’t know real news if it hit me in the face” always has something ignorant and tacky to say about The Obamas. As far as I am concerned they have been the only white house family that have considered the American people’s problems.So what is she rocks some expensive sneakers, last time I researched she HAS A HARVARD LAW DEGREE
    However, they will hate because our President is black and they never thought in their wildest dreams that a black man would be telling them what to do…get over it. Go Obama’s!!!
