Jill Biden Is Sending an Important Message With Her Over-the-Knee Boots
When encouraging everyone to go out and vote isn't enough, it takes a notable accessory to drive the point home. Michelle Obama did it with a delicate Chari Cuthbert necklace during the Democratic National Convention and now, Dr. Jill Biden is offering up her own spin with a pair of over-the-knee boots emblazoned with VOTE.
As Dr. Biden and her husband, Joe, left the state building in Wilmington, Delaware, today, cameras snapped her Stuart Weitzman boots, which featured silver text with a simple four-letter message: VOTE. CNN's Kate Bennett confirmed that the style isn't a special, limited-edition release made just for Jill Biden. The shoes are available for anyone who wants them for $695. The 5050 Vote Boot is Stuart Weitzman's latest spin on its fan-favorite 5050 boot, a flat OTK style that's beloved for comfort and versatility thanks to soft nappa leather and a full-elastic back panel. Anyone looking to share Dr. Biden's message can opt for her flashy silver-on-black style or a more subtle black-on-black option. Both are still available.
According to a representative for Stuart Weitzman, 100% of the proceeds from the style's sales will be donated to I am a voter. The non-partisan organization hopes to create a cultural shift around voting and civic engagement by bringing attention to one central, undeniable truth: democracy works best when all participate.
Naturally, Twitter users rallied behind Dr. Biden's footwear choice, applauding the not-so-subtle request for everyone to get out and cast their ballots.
It's a stark contrast to current first lady Melania Trump's more text-focused fashion choices and offers a glimpse into what sort of fashion choices Dr. Biden will make if she's the next first lady of the United States.
