Michelle Obama wears crazy ugly shoes to the Yankees-Phillies World Series



World series
So much for sports fashion advice.

As expected, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden made a joint appearance at last night's World Series opener, but their outfits aren't exactly going to land them on any best-dressed lists. The usually fashionable ladies both wore basic black pants and showed they were good sports (no pun intended) by donning the standard-issue World Series red jackets. Totally acceptable, if uninspiring.

Michelle's shoes However. WHAT IN THE NAME OF MANOLO BLAHNIK WAS THE FIRST LADY WEARING ON HER FEET??!!?! Mrs. Obama's kicks appear to be black sneakers with way-too-contrasting thick white soles. They make her pants bunch weirdly at the ankles. They look like they belong on the feet of a teenage boy at a skate park. And, egads, do I spy velcro?

This isn't the first time FLOTUS has worn some questionable, if fashion-forward, sneaks. Personally, I think Mrs. Biden pulled off a sleeker look Wednesday night with safe but solid black boots.
