Melania Trump Surprises in Brown Flats With Buckles on Plane to South Carolina

Melania Trump loves her stilettos, but she went with a different shoe today for a visit to South Carolina with Karen Pence.

The first lady teamed her knee-length green trench with flats rather than her go-to heels.

The Slovenian American’s shoes were brown suede Roger Vivier ballet flats that featured pointed toes and the brand’s signature buckle detail.

Pence, who just wrote a book with daughter Charlotte called “Marlon Bundo’s Best Christmas Ever,” wore a black double-breasted dress and pointed-toe pumps.

Typically, the first lady’s shoe style consists mostly of classic pumps. Her go-to pumps are Manolo Blahnik’s BB stilettos and Christian Louboutin’s So Kate.

Nonetheless, the first lady has opted for Roger Vivier shoes before. For a visit to the New York Stock Exchange in September, Melania wore a simple black, knee-length dress with shiny black, buckle-adorned pumps from the French label. In June, the first lady teamed the same pumps with a black coat on a visit to Normandy, France.

While Melania is usually in stilettos, today wasn’t the first time she swapped heels for flats. The former model has been spotted in Louboutin ballet flats in the past. She has also worked some more affordable footwear into the mix, including styles from Timberland, Adidas and Converse.
