Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is also wearing Sergio Hudson today, per CNN, along with Christopher John Rogers.

Obama has voiced her support for Biden during the contentious 2020 presidential race, as well as her hopes for overcoming a difficult and politically strife year.

"We've endured so much this past year, from the devastation of the pandemic to the ups and downs of a hard-won election. But what has perhaps stayed with me most is the passionate message of justice and empathy that has defined the Black Lives Matter protests around the world," Obama wrote on Instagram in December.

She continued, "I hope more people can find it in their hearts to meet these cries for decency not with mistrust, but with love and a willingness to listen. Because as the COVID-19 crisis has made clear, our fates are inextricably bound. If the least of us struggles, we all in some way feel that pain. And, unless we keep speaking out and marching for equality, none of us will ever truly be free. We can’t watch a man choked to death in the light of day and assume that all our children can be safe. We can’t tell people they can use their voices, but then say, 'Yes, but not right now' or 'That’s not the right way.'"
