    Remember how we told you that Kate Middleton and Princess Diana both loved the same Superega trainers? Well it turns out a love of the same shoes doesn’t just run in the Royal family, it runs in the US Presidential family too. Or ex-Presidential if we’re being specific.

    Michelle Obama just posted a picture of herself on Instagram visiting College Students. In it, she’s wearing grey jeans, a matching cardigan and some low-top grey Converse sneakers. Casual but chic, as per the former First Lady’s usual style.

    And it turns out her daughter Malia is also a fan, regularly wearing the same trainers, albeit usually the high top version in a different colour, though she tends to wear them more with denim dresses and checked shirts.

    We’re not really sure who started wearing the trainers first, but given they’ve been around for decades, we’d venture a guess that it was Michelle.


    Either way, we can understand why they love them so much, because there’s no going wrong with the classic Converse. You can grab your own online or give our Black Friday trainer deals page a look, they might just make an appearance.

    You can style it up with a floral dress or down with a chambray shirt and jeans for a effortless weekend look. We’re all about that versatility.
