Michelle Obama Sports $540 Sneakers

Michelle Obama has kicked her frugal fashion choices to the curb.

The first lady donned some pricy gray suede designer sneakers with metallic pink toe caps while volunteering at a Washington, D.C., food bank on Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported.

The stylish shoes are made by French design label Lavin and also come in denim and satin -- as long as you're willing to fork over a whopping $540, according to the paper.

And Michelle's reps weren't eager to discuss her new kicks.

"They're shoes," a rep told the Daily News.

The first lady debuted the fancy footwear at the Capital Area Food Bank where she wore a J. Crew cardigan and a pair of simple capri pants, the News reported.

Ellen DeGeneres and Kanye West have also been known to wear the shoes.
