Skip to comments.“Now, I’m free to do whatever”: Michelle Obama explains her $3,900 Balenciaga boots (hurl alert)

In one appearance, Michelle Obama did for Balenciaga boots what it took a hit TV show for Sarah Jessica Parker to do for Manolo Blahniks. During the most recent stop on the book tour for her bestselling memoir Becoming, the former first lady dropped by Brooklyns Barclays Center Wednesday night for a discussion with Parker.
While the Sex and the City star was clad in a holiday-appropriate sequin dress, Obamas sparkly $3,900 Balenciaga boots got all the attention. In fact, by Thursday afternoon, the boots were trending on Twitter and were nearly sold out on the Balenciaga website.
As a two-term first lady, Michelle Obama was without a doubt a style influencer. The clothes she wore routinely sold out, whether they cost thousands of dollars or fewer than a hundred.
Her successor, Melania Trump, a former model, has repeatedly made headlines for fashion gaffes such as wearing stilettos on her way to hurricane-ravaged Texas, an I dont really care. Do U? jacket on a trip to see detained migrant children, or a colonizer-style ensemble to a trip to Kenya. But Michelle Obama stood out by embracing young designers and championing retailers that middle-class families could afford to wear, like J. Crew, the Gap, and Target. Obama, after all, served as first-lady as the nation rebounded from an economic recession.

Michelle Obama is the living embodiment of The Emperor's New Clothes.
Looking every inch like a drag queen, she's boasting about how it's all about her and the Good Life, now.
The author. Who thinks Michelle's fashion sense is to be admired.
Goebbles would love the the third paragraph.
Michelle never had any fashion gaffes, got that?
Legions of women like her are going to demand Kamala Harris for President.
the boots were trending on Twitter and were nearly sold out’
Who the hell buys $4000 boots and how many of these people are out there?
Can you imagine Laura Bush acting like this? Total adolescent narcissism.
This is sooooooo last week. LOL! HNY!!!!!
Obviously, giving women the right to vote was a mistake. It will encourage Kamala Harris to run for President.
Excerpts like this are why lots of FReepers don’t click on the garbage websites and drive their traffic numbers up. Not clicking on a Vox link that begins with such ridiculous drivel, knowing that it’ll almost certainly get worse as the article continues.
But thanks for posting this, since it’s good for a chuckle (after the barf) and as re-affirmation that leftists truly are mentally disordered.
Some pigs are more swinish than others.
Real Trout skin?
With thigh-high boots like that, Mooschelle doesn't have to shave her legs, which must save her several hours per day.
I am surprised that they make them in men’s sizes.
I can easily imagine hordes of lib drones buying up these hideous outfits because ... they were told to. And I can imagine pods of narwhals convulsing up avenues all across the country in mermaid-tail boots that wouldn’t look out of place on a Saigon hooker, little realizing that sane people everywhere are laughing at them.
Oil slicks around a boat launch.
“As a two-term first lady, Michelle Obama was without a doubt a style influencer.”
Yeah. She influenced me to carry a barf bag when I look at her stupid face..
Drag Queen of the year!
I’m not sure which is more hideous, the boots or the dress.
DON’T INSULT TROUT!
Are we certain those are boots and not her reptilian skin and talons?
