We already know that President Obama is on board with the Jumpman, but does the First Lady rock heat as well? Apparently more prone to lifestyle sneakers, Michelle Obama was recently spotted on-air with Ellen Degeneres rocking the CLOT x Converse Chuck Taylor ‘Handshake’. The Converse Chuck Taylor is obviously a very popular sneaker, so normally this wouldn’t be notable, but the fact that she showed up on the set with a collabo pair from one of Asia’s biggest footwear forces certainly hints at some deeper knowledge of the game, or at least a good stylist. Are Barack and Michelle Obama America’s first presidential sneakerhead couple? Is Joe Biden getting a pair of Nike Air Yeezy’s 2 before they drop? Stay tuned with Sneaker News for all the answers and check the photos after the jump. via Rick Williams
Which Nikes is Ellen wearing? They kinda look like killshots to me, but I can't really tell. Well done Michelle Obama!
The first lady is gettin in it. Who ever is in charge of her sneaker collection at the white house deserves a raise for that. Clot x Converses get a thumbs up
Nice kicks First Lady...if we see the President in red Foams in a couple weeks then we'll know he's a sneakerhead.
Shut the fuck up moron, we will be in debt until the world ends....this is a sneaker site not fucking CNN
