Melania Trump Greets the Turkish President in Soaring Louboutin Stilettos

Melania Trump wore one of her favorite shoe styles Wednesday as she and President Donald Trump greeted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his wife, Emine, at the White House for a widely criticized visit. Trump welcomed Erdogan “amid bipartisan concern” over Turkish attacks on Kurdish strongholds in Syria, USA Today reported.

For a photo session with the two leaders, Melania wore a baby blue double-breasted wool-blend coat from Altuzzara, available for just under $2,300 at Nordstrom.com.

For footwear, the first lady selected one of her two go-to pumps: Christian Louboutin’s So Kate. The shoe has a pointed toe, a 4.75-inch stiletto heel and a red lacquer sole. The heel is set almost vertically, which is meant to create a smooth stride for the wearer. Additionally, it features a low-cut topline, a feature designed to elongate the length of the leg.

While Melania owns the So Kate in a number of colors and fabrications — including some trend-forward ones — today’s shoes were in glossy black patent leather; they’re available on Nordstrom.com for around $700.

Aside from the So Kate, Melania is a big fan of Manolo Blahnik’s BB pump, which similarly boasts a pointed toe and stiletto heel. She has also been known to wear Louboutin ballet flats on occasion, as well as more affordable shoes from brands such as Timberland and Adidas.

Presidents Trump and Erdogan both sported dark suits with navy overcoats and black dress shoes. The Turkish first lady wore all white, from a double-breasted coat dress to a turtleneck top and wide-leg trousers.
