Ivanka Trump wore shoes from her own brand while visiting a charter school in Virginia to promote computer science education. The adviser to the president spent yesterday morning practicing coding with young students after joining Microsoft president Brad Smith and CEO of Code.org Hadi Partovi in a discussion to express to the students how coding and computer sciences can improve the country’s workforce.
Trump teamed red cropped trousers and a striped sweater with her Brita ankle strap pump in black. In luxe suede, the shoe features a pointed toe and an adjustable ankle strap in a half d’orsay aesthetic. While the black version of the Brita style is sold out from most retailers, Century 21 offers it for a sale price.
