Michelle Obama's fashion – much like everything she does – always hits a high note. And if anyone can make a fashion piece go viral, it's Michelle; the 'vote' necklace she wore a few years ago sold out instantly and she had us all clamoring for a luxe silk blouse like her beautiful Nanushka 'Alice' shirt.

The former first lady isn't all formal silks and power pantsuits though – Michelle gives good casual looks too. We instantly added the chic sneakers she wore in 2020 to our shopping wish list. Michelle teamed a pair of mom-style jeans with the coolest metallic sneakers from cult-favorite brand, Golden Goose, while recording a podcast.

The brand's designs are all artfully distressed and feature bright colours or metallic finishes. Think of them as the most stylish spin on a classic white sneaker!

The sneakers, retailing at over $500, are an investment piece but if your budget doesn't quite stretch that far, we've found the best Golden Goose dupes that start from as little as $63. From sneakers with silver stars to glitter finishes in gold and bronze, there's lots out there to get the Michelle O look. You can thank us later…

Amazon's affordable sneakers are giving us major Michelle O vibes, with a metallic star and silver accents.

Similarly, Temu's under $25 sneakers feature a glitter silver star and stacked sole for extra height.

A little glitter star makes these Vintage Havana sneakers stand out from the crowd.
