Happy Birthday, Sasha Obama: 19 of Her Best Shoe Styles Through the Years

Sasha Obama has grown up right before our eyes — and Wednesday, June 10, she’s celebrating a milestone: her 19th birthday.

It seems like not so long ago that Sasha and her big sister Malia were youngsters growing up at the White House while their father, President Barack Obama, served as president. Now, the Obama girls have moved out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. — and out of Washington, D.C. Malia is gearing up for her final year of study as an undergraduate student at Harvard University, while Sasha just completed her first year as an undergrad at University of Michigan.

As Sasha enters the last of her teenage years, FN is feeling nostalgic. In honor of her birthday, FN is looking back at some of her standout shoe moments through the years, from her adorable days as a youngster at the White House to her current days as a style-savvy teen.

Pretty in Pink

While at the White House in 2009, Obama jazzed up her all-pink look with chic gold flats.

Kid-Friendly Wedges

Obama gave her sundress a height boost — in an age-appropriate way — with low-heeled wedge sandals on a 2010 trip to Florida.

Classic Mary Janes

Like a true fashionista, Sasha chose white Mary Janes to match the belt on her dress for a family portrait in April 2015. And she gets bonus points for matching to her dog.
