FLOTUS' barefoot policy for the White House
But not on her feet.
Blakely said she was was standing in a long line at an event to take a photo with FLOTUS when her Christian Louboutins became painful.
When she finally reached the first lady, Blakely said she "literally burst out, 'My feet are killing me,' and (FLOTUS) goes, 'Girl, my feet are killing me, too,' " Blakely told Footwear News, according to Huffington Post. "I asked if I can take my shoes off and she said, 'Yes, and you can tell anyone who tells you to put them back on that Mrs. Obama said you can take them off.'"
