Woman Of The People Michelle Obama Wears $500+ Sneakers

While handing out food to the needy as part of a photo op.

While volunteering Wednesday at a D.C. food bank, the First Lady sported her usual J.Crew cardigan, a pair of utilitarian capri pants and, on her feet, a sneaky splurge: trainers that go for $540.

That's right: These sneakers - suede, with grosgrain ribbon laces and metallic pink toe caps - are made by French design house Lanvin, one of fashion's hottest labels. They come in denim and satin versions, and have been a brisk seller all spring.

They're out of stock at posh Meatpacking District boutique Jeffrey, and Barneys New York boasts a limited selection of the sneaks, which are a cult favorite among fashionistas.

Let them eat designer sneakers!

I don't give a flying fuck what she wears or how much it costs but just imagine if it were a Republican helping the needy while dressed like this.

Of course none of this matters because she the most awesomest woman evah! so shut the hell up.
