$540 sneakers? Geeze...I think I'm beginning to understand why it is she developed a pride in being an American about 11 months ago.

She could have gotten Converse or Vans for a tenth of that or less.

“I got up at 5:15 in the morning to walk my puppy,” she joked Thursday. “That’s how my day starts. Even though the kids are supposed to do a lot of the work, I’m still up at 5:15 a.m. taking my dog out.”

***Oh come on. How stupid does she think we are? She has 4 people in the WH to do all of the doggie care.

And by the way, those sneaks are flat out ugly.

Do as they say, not as they do. Typical elitist hypocrites who preach how evil money is and show their true elitist colors while dictating to others how they need to live their lives.

Or she could have bought a pair of $50 sneakers for herself and another 9 pairs of $50 sneakers for homeless people to spread the wealth around a little. That’s the line conservatives need to take with spending like this. Leftist hate having their spending choices second-guessed.

If she walks her dog in those, she’s gonna get really bad shin splints. Look like a pair of Converse with opalescent paint sprayed on them. I’d prefer Converse.

They'd be the first to pillory Laura Bush or Sarah Palin for wearing $540 sneakers. You can bet they would point out how many homeless people could be clothed or fed for what those sneakers cost.

Hmm. $540.00 sneakers. Well, it’s OK if you can afford them.

That amount of money would buy my Mustang torque monster a new clutch.

Geez.

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.

Why not? The Obomas own tax slaves. They'll just have to work a little harder from now on.

They’re out of stock at posh Meatpacking District boutique Jeffrey, and Barneys New York boasts a limited selection of the sneaks,

Oh Damn! I so wanted to get a pair so I can be one of the beautiful people,( BARF)

We're asked to sacrifice. We're asked to voluntarily make our bricks without straw.

She needs a new wardrobe, so we all have to do our part.

I purchased a pair of atheletic style shoes at a Walmart (I was on business travel and that was as far as I could walk) for $16. They felt great and looked good enough.

That was a year ago and I still wear them.

I’m sorry, I’m still trying to grasp “posh Meatpacking District boutique”...strange images come to mind-and none involve shoes.(I’m just an un-hip hick chick, I reckon.)

One cannot do anything practical in those shoes!
But, consider the wearer.
Why do they make it sooo easy to fall for the class envy thang? I mean, in normal circumstances, I don’t begrudge a body for what they fritter their dough on- maybe it’s because they seem to just rub our noses in it?
Way to unite, Mo!

I've been upset with Obama for months because he doesn't spend our money as carefully as they would spend their own money. I was wrong. They spend our tax dollars exactly as carelessly as they spend their own money. They are disgusting beyond words.

Even if I could afford $540 sneakers for the entire family, I'd rather get ordinary shoes and give the difference to my church, to my favorite charity to help sick children, or to anything useful. I don't do conspicuous consumption, while the Obamas don't do anything else.

I couldn’t care less about what she pays for her shoes. I buy $250 a pair sneakers because they help me walk (and mine are ugly too.) Who cares what someone pays for shoes...it’s their money and they can spend it as they wish. Some guys buy expensive suits due to their line of work, some women buy expensive purses, etc. I don’t want to be like the “class envy” types on the left, and fret over what somebody pays for something.

I think she looks like a very large man in drag. She's an Amazon woman. When she stands next to her sugar daddy, he looks like one of her kids.
