The second lady’s kitten heels are among other walkable footwear styles that make appearances in her wardrobe. In fact, on Oct. 2 in Florida for an outdoor visit to the K9s For Warriors center, a program that matches service dogs with veterans to help them cope with mental illness, such as PTSD, she wore a sleeveless black tank top with coordinating straight-leg trousers. For accessories, the second lady opted for a black belt with a statement silver buckle and layered necklaces. For shoes, Pence chose what appears to be a pair of black penny-style loafers with a slight heel.
