Melania Trump’s Best Shoe Style of 2019

Over three years as first lady, Melania Trump has homed in on a distinct style sensibility — and it involves lots of stilettos.

Trump is a particularly big fan of two classic, pointed-toe pumps: Manolo Blahnik’s BB and Christian Louboutin’s So Kate. She owns each silhouette in a wide range of colors and fabrications, often matching them to her dresses for smartly coordinated looks.

Sometimes, Trump takes the coordination a step further, choosing completely monochromatic outfits. She took on the monochrome trend in February, when she wore head-to-toe pale pink with BB pumps at a children’s hospital in Bethesda, Md.

In addition to her beloved So Kate pumps, Trump has been spotted in several other Christian Louboutin silhouettes over the course of the year. The stiletto lover has ditched her usual heels for sensible flats several times, including Louboutin’s Ballalla ($575 on Nordstrom.com).

While both Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin come with designer price tags — the BB costs $625 and up on Nordstrom.com, while the So Kate will set you back $695 at Saksfifthavenue.com — Trump has occasionally mixed more affordable shoes into her wardrobe.
