President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden soaked up the sunny weather in their home state of Delaware this weekend with a couple’s bike ride.
Staying at their home in Rehoboth Beach, Del., the first couple boarded their bicycles for a Sunday afternoon excursion with full security detail. For the outing. Dr. Biden herself prepped for movement in a long-sleeve T-shirt and dark leggings; her navy shirt comes from Pelotonia, a cycling-focused nonprofit organization that raises funds for cancer research.
Both Bidens protected their feet for the ride in lace-up running shoes. President Biden’s pick comes from Brooks Running with similar colorways available for $130 on the brand’s website.
Jill’s own smooth gray style comes from Nike and bears a resemblance to the brand’s Air Zoom Pegasus 36 silhouette. The running shoe includes the brand’s iconic Swoosh logo, set atop an engineered mesh upper and exposed Flywire cables for a snug fit. Finished off with a full-length Zoom Air unit for a more responsive step, the cushioned style once retailed for $120 Nike.com but now resells for upwards of $75 to $131 at GOAT.
When it comes to footwear, Dr. Biden has a varied taste in shoes. Her go-to brands include Dior, Jimmy Choo and Stuart Weitzman in addition to Prada. She is also known for her love of running and in the past has preferred workout-ready footwear from Swiss running brand On. When it comes to apparel, the first lady’s official style taps a mix of well-known labels like Brandon Maxwell and Oscar de la Renta as well as supports smaller American brands like Jonathan Cohen and Markarian to name a few.
