Mini Must-Have: Sasha Obama’s Slouchy Boots!

On Jan. 4, Sasha Obama — along with the rest of the first family — was all smiles upon returning to the White House from her recent holiday trip to Hawaii.

The stylish tween, 8, traded in her vacation duds for a chic cold-weather ensemble including knit hat, wool coat, floral dress, tights, heart print bag and suede boots for the ride home.

We love the look, especially her Steve Madden Kids “Sha” boots ($79, below). The slouchy style and neutral color make them the perfect winter shoe.

This trend of calling pre-adolsecents ‘tweens’ is so annoying. Why not just call Sasha a ‘young lady’? It’s much more classy, IMO. Her outfit is sharp! But her parents dress very nicely so she will too. I wish more young people cared about how they look instead of wearing tees and hoodies a lot of the time.

Last winter she had a pair of primigi Jackie quilted boots and they were so cute. Sasha must have a very nice shoe collection.

I like these too but those quilted boots were the bomb.

She looks adorable but I don’t think any 8 year old needs $80 boots.

When in the world did age 8 become a tween???? Sad!

Wow! I just ordered these same boots for myself last week. I hope they are just as stylish on a 28 year old as they are on an 8 year old!

Isn’t a “tween” someone much older than eight?😦

Cute boots but this little girl is not a tween. This child is not even in middle school yet. Wait until her age is at least double digits to call her a tween, if you must give any child that ridiculous title!

there is also an adult version of these, which you can get at DSW for $35. I have a black pair identical to these from Target that cost maybe $25.

I had no idea that an 8 year-old is considered a “tween” already! Her boots are adorable.

Love the Obama family’s sense of style and Sasha is no exception. Wouldn’t call an 8-year old a tween, though.

Just wanted to weigh in as well, an 8 year old is not a tween! Kids have so little time just being kids, it is hardly necessary to age them by title well before they’re ready.

I’ll agree that tween is a pretty annoying term. It’s up there with “sexting” and any twitter related word for me. Also, I agree that she is not a tween, but a young girl or lady. Eight is like third grade right?!

I do like the boots though and would consider buying some (though I would go for the Target brand lol). I think the Obama girls dress very cute and fashionable and most of all appropriately, just like their mother.

They have them in Kohl’s (Candies) for like $30.00 …very cute. I personally got mine for $25.00 and I love them!!

Malia is more of a “tween” then Sasha.

What a sweet little girl. Love her outfit, so age appropriate. She always looks so happy. Don’t agree with ANY of the Obama’s politics but they obviously love their children. They are always smiling and seem so sweet

Love the boots! As someone who is not American, we LOVE your President, his politics, and his beautiful and very stylish family.

I said the same thing to my husband………since when are 8 year olds tweens? I don’t think so.

I am so glad you did not disappoint by interjecting your dislike for President Obama’s politics. I thought the focus was on Sasha’s style!

oh… i was just coming on here about the tween thing, but a ton of you beat me to it. she’s a cute kid– i think of tweens as what “preteen” used to describe. just, nobody says preteen anymore.

daniela on

Love the boots! Seeing them on her makes me want to buy some, and I’ve never really liked the style before. 🙂 And 8 is not a tween, I would consider a tween someone at least 11 yrs old.

Meela, Kimberlee Chrisman can say what ever she wants about not agreeing with his politics. And she said it in a nice way. Don’t call someone out just because they don’t like him. As for my post, she is a very very cute little girl, and it shows that they love their girls very much. Even though I don’t agree with anything that comes out of our President’s mouth and dislike him more than anything. Very cute kids.🙂

Andrea on

Glad to see I’m not the only one who wanted to weigh in on the “tween” comment. She’s a kid (and a cute one at that!), not a tween!

so, what exactly is considered ‘childhood’ these days when an 8 year old is already a tween?

Sasha looks great. Just like her mother. Sasha’s style is so cute and feminine. My nephew has such a crush on her; his imaginary friend’s name is Sasha.

Kiki – $80 for boots being expensive is relative. I wouldn’t have a problem spending it. How would it look if one was walking around with Chloe, Gucci, and Marc Jacobs and the kids are wearing Wal-Mart?

Cat and Kimberlee Chrisman – CBB had a rule not long ago where they would not post comments with “but” because they were are usually negative. Folks like you make me wish that rule was in effect. Comment on the style and leave the comments for Fox. That will keep this site much more enjoyable.

Jenn on

J-Lin, defensive much? She didn’t say she disliked his politics in a negative way. It’s no different that saying that an actor’s child is cute but throwing in there that they are not a fan of the actor’s movies. I’ve seen much worse on here. Some people are not a fan of Obama. So what. They can express that but still comment that Obama and Michelle have two beautiful daughters. Deal with it.

Erin on

The point is, why would you throw your opinion of her dad in while discussing her boots? When the Bush twins rocked an outfit I never threw in that I didn’t like their dad. I’m sure a kid would like to be recognized for who they are – not who they’re related to.

She looks very pretty here. Seems like a sweet little girl also.

I am with J-Lin keep the Politics out of here! It has ZERO to do what Sasha is wearing so why start it up? Like she said go to a FOX blog with it, they’d love your hate there.

Jenn Cat was negative. As for your example about commenting on an actors skill or movies, that’s uncalled for too.

Why is everyone so sensitive on this site? If you don’t like the comment just let is slide by you.

I love these boots, I hope I could find similar ones for myself!

Debra on

Some people may be sensitive on the issue because you rarely see any mention of the Obamas without some kind of comment, whether positive or negative. I agree with J-Lin. Comment on the kid’s shoes, and leave it at that. It was going out of the way and reaching to comment on dislike of Obamas politics. What does that have to do with the kids boots. I don’t care for Palin’s politics, but I like the child’s boots. Still makes about as much sense.

She is soooooo cute! They always look great and age appropriate. I have the adult version of these – didn’t know they made kids! – but my niece is definitely getting a pair!

Those boots are rocking. I like ’em…forget the kid I want a pair for myself.

Love that same people whining about partisan bias go on to make comments that are far more politically snarky in the next breath. And this is coming from someone who volunteers with the Obama administration. Hilarious.
Back on topic, Sasha and Malia are the best dressed “celebrity” kids in my opinion, and Sasha’s boots are rockin’. Great kids.

Meela,
Exactly. We can ALL express our OPINIONS… SO next time someone is expressing their OPINION you don’t have to call them out just because you don’t agree with what they are saying. Good thing this is a topic about her shoes and you have still yet to comment on what the focus was.. But whatever ” “HONEY”, it’s all for fun.

RIP Michael – I know! I want a pair for myself, too. Do they have an adult version of this boot?

I think the adult version is called “Bonanza.”
