Fashion Meets Politics: Michelle Obama & Sarah Palin May Be On Opposing Sides, But They Both Love Red Pumps!

They may not usually share the same taste, but check out their similar shoes — who do you think wore red pumps best?

Michelle Obama is praised for her stellar sense of style, and we always notice whatever she’s wearing — and her latest get-up was no exception, but who knew she was taking fashion tips from Sarah Palin?

Sarah’s footwear and her affinity for affordable pumps caused quite the frenzy when she campaigned back in 2008 — and we certainly didn’t forget her red shoes, which is why we were instantly reminded of the pair when we saw the First Lady sporting shoes of the same hue!

While this was probably just a coincidence, I do find the similarity between their mid-level heels and their conservative attire entertaining — imagine the two women strolling with a latte in hand while leisurely shoe shopping together?

Since that won’t be happening anytime soon, vote for who you think rocked their red pumps best!
