Michele Obama caused jaws to drop Wednesday night when she wore a stunning pair of thigh-high boots to a book tour event with Sarah Jessica Parker.
The gold sequin-covered boots are from Balenciaga’s Spring 2019 collection and currently retail at $US3,900. They have a 4.3-inch heel and are made in Italy.
She paired the look with a long silk shirt dress from the same brand.
Valerie Jarret, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, attended the event and was just as awed as the rest of the world by the boots.
“Well, I have never seen boots like this before. Have you? Love that @MichelleObama chose these for her last stop on her 2018 #IAmBecoming book tour in Brooklyn, NY,” Jarret tweeted.
“Michelle Obama and these boots ain’t playing with y’all,”another Twitter user wrote.

Obama will resume her tour in February, starting in Tacoma, Washington. So far, her 2019 tour dates run through May 12 in Nashville, Tennessee.
