Melania Trump loves her stilettos, but she went for more casual footwear — combat boots — on her latest flight.
The first lady boarded Air Force 1 Tuesday en route from New York to Washington, D.C., and she sported an appropriate cold-weather outfit for the occasion.
Trump wore a black-and-white tweed double-breasted Red Valentino jacket over a long-sleeved black top and matching skinny jeans.
She completed her monochrome look with chic black leather combat boots featuring a pared-down silhouette, three buckled straps across the vamp and a pull-tab at the ankle.
While combat boots never really go out of style, the silhouette is pervasive for fall ’19, with “It” girl fans such as Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber. The boots were initially used by men in battle, but they became a fashion item in the ’60s and ’70s, thanks to the British punk and youth cultures on London’s famed Carnaby Street.
When it comes to her typical shoe style, the first lady is a big fan of classic pointed-toe pumps, particularly Christian Louboutin’s So Kate and Manolo Blahnik’s BB.
Although Trump is usually in stilettos, she’s been known to work flats into the mix on occasion. The former model has been spotted in Louboutin ballet flats several times. She’s also opted for more accessibly priced shoes from the likes of Timberland, Adidas and Converse.
