Michelle Obamas footwear is causing a fashion frenzy, after the former first lady sported sparkling $4,000 designer boots.
The Becoming author stepped out in the eye-catching pair of Balenciaga boots on Wednesday at a Brooklyn stop on her nationwide book tour. Former Sex and the City star and fashion designer Sarah Jessica Parker served as the celebrity guest moderator for the chat about Obamas best-selling memoir.
The gold, thigh-high boots retail for $3,800, and several sizes were sold out or low in stock on at least one site selling them after Obama's appearance.
Multiple fashion gurus and first lady watchers went wild for the lux look:
The current first lady has also drawn attention for her footwear. Last year, Melania Trump's press office slammed the media for focusing on her high heel shoes as she boarded Air Force One to head to Texas to visit areas damaged by Hurricane Harvey.
In a headline, The Mirror called the stiletto-style shoes the "most inappropriate clothes imaginable."
Stephanie Grisham, Trump's communications director, said in a statement to CNN at the time, "It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes."
Grisham also knocked the press for another instance of homing in on what Trump was sporting on her feet in a CNN op-ed last week, writing, "When Mrs. Trump invited children from a local Boys and Girls club to help plant vegetables in the White House garden, the media chose to focus on the cost of her shirt and the fact that her shoes were clean."
Is that photo-shopped just to make her appear so huge?
Riding saddle optional.
OMG! No photo/barf warning?

Strap antlers on em and send them into the woods.
Nice picnic table umbrella. Needs to be taken in a bit.
She spent 4K to avoid shaving her legs ...
Wow. Not becoming at all. Looks like rainbow trout skin.
What would they say if Melania wore those (which she wouldnt because she has good taste)?
Hussein’s *bitter half* Meh.
They would look better on Hussein.
Is she becoming the new Oprah?
Tranny Hooker Boots.
What a trashy outfit.
Looks like she stole that guy's package off his porch and got glitter-bombed.
