Mrs. O in Puma Sneakers

The sneaker obsessed among us probably took note when the first lady debuted a new pair of shoes this week to harvest the White House vegetable garden. Mrs. O wore PUMA 917 Lo Poparts, priced at a very economical $55.00. They're still available at Puma's online store, here.

They're very childlike and fun - it's always nice to see Mrs. O display her budget-coscious side! :)

Nice .

Good to know who made her sneakers. I like them ON HER. I could never pull them off.

She has a fantastic sneaker collection. They look fun and cool on her!

Good to know that Mrs.O is a fan. I own 3 pairs of Puma's myself. This is definitely one of the benefits of having an 8yr old and a 10yr old - they keep you young and on top of things!

I love the cartoon/colored-in aspect of these sneaks. Very fun!

PS - Bill Cunningham's weekly audio-slideshow in TheNewYorkTimes covers the cardigan today.

I love my Pumas too - Olive green suede with blue trim.

The site's so quiet. Guess there's not much to criticize and complain about - huh?

These are cute -- love the look!

"Mrs. O wore PUMA 917 Lo Poparts, priced at a very economical $55.00."

Dear Mrs T., you must know that there are those who will still begrudge her even these "economical" sneakers. The woman simply can't win for losing, so she might as well just be. LOL.

I say, wear whatever your heart desires Michelle, you hot mama jama!

P.S - The Puma's are super nice, but the Lanvin's are a serious pair of enduring hotness! Price and fake outrage be damned!

Luv these sneakers! Went to the Puma site to order a pair to add to my collection ( currently have three pairs) but the picture on their web site doesn't look like the same shoe. FLOTUS' shoe has six eyelets the other has seven. Also, the color looks a little off. Can someone help me Pleeeeease?

Monday, June 22, 2009 at 12:50 AM | Unregistered Commenteravo

First the Lanvin sneakers, now this. Nice choices, nice sneakers Mrs. O!

Monday, June 22, 2009 at 10:00 AM | Unregistered CommenterAlexandria J

Oops...I see my mistake now. Mrs. O's sneakers don't seem to have as many eyelets (Is this what they're called?) because she's bending her foot ;) I ordered these today. Can't wait to wear them. I'm a young 48yrs (soon to be 49, ugh) and like the fun, youthfulness of these shoes. My sons will probably hate them, but who cares.

Monday, June 22, 2009 at 12:45 PM | Registered Commenteravo

Almost forgot to mention...these are men's sneakers so order accordingly if you're going to purchase. PUMA.com has a very handy conversion chart so it's no sweat.

Mrs. O was volunteering with Cali First Lady, Maria Shriver in SF today. Any news on that event?

I just found a clip of Mrs. O at the Days of service kick-off event in SF today: http://www.politico.com/singletitlevideo.html?bcpid=1155201977&bctid=27141306001

Here's video of our beautiful First Lady's PSA on the administration's "Summer of Service" initiative: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZaBHgj6jYE

I think this is the shot Mrs. T should use for the whole look.


Monday, June 22, 2009 at 5:46 PM | Registered CommenterIVA

Yeah that is a good photo but it doesn't show the bigger hearts that are the shirt.

Maybe some more photo will emerge soon ;)

Monday, June 22, 2009 at 6:59 PM | Registered CommenterLeah D

Some really great shots of the First Ladies are now up on daylife:





Monday, June 22, 2009 at 7:04 PM | Registered Commentermarabout40

@ Leah D - looks like marabout40 found some! I agree, the picture you linked to shows her shirt much clearer

Monday, June 22, 2009 at 7:15 PM | Registered CommenterIVA

I don't understand why anyone, even the president's wife, would wear new shoes or clothes to get dirty in the garden!
