So remember when I mentioned those Lanvin sneakers the First Lady wore to the Capital Area Food Bank volunteer event? Yes, the ones that cost over $500. Well a very similar pair presently retail at Barneys New York for $540. Before you lose your breath, I must add that they have a sleek shiny cap toe and funky grosgrain ribbon detail.
I wasn’t going to mention them again but they’re getting so much hype on the Web. What do you guys think? Were the sneakers a good option for Mrs. Obama or should she have stayed with her usual ballet flat as Dr. Biden did? Do you think these or any sneakers are worth $540?
