The French first lady can often be spotted in Louis Vuitton clothing, shoes and accessories. With respect to footwear specifically, she tends to favor pointed-toe pumps set on a stiletto or block heel, choosing styles that add a boost of around 4 inches. Louis Vuitton’s Eyeline is one of her staples, and she is also a fan of the graphic-print Matchmake pump.

Although Macron usually gravitates toward more classic silhouettes, she has on occasion been spotted in more trend-forward styles, with details like PVC or snake print livening up her look.
