Nice Shoes!

I found the following article interesting: First Lady Michelle Obama steps out in Lanvin sneakers and they’re only $540! While many of us are barely holding on during this recession there is always a few that remind us how poor we really are. Apparently the First Lady was volunteering at a food bank the other day sporting $540 sneakers. Don’t get me wrong its good she is volunteering her time, not that she has anything else to do. Plus we all know she is rich so of course she will have the finer things in life. However, I believe it to be a poor choice of character flaunty luxury items in front of people that can’t even afford to feed themselves. Seriously $540 sneakers? She would have won me over if she showed up in a pair of $75 Nikes and donated the rest of the $465 to someone who truly needs it. Sure I might be a little jealous but im not the one the country is looking up to right now during this financial crisis. Any thoughts?
