Ivanka Trump Plays Basketball in Soaring Stilettos on Iowa Trip

Playing sports is hard enough when you’re wearing gym clothes and sneakers, but Ivanka Trump played basketball in high heels during a July 19 trip to Des Moines, Iowa. The 37-year-old first daughter teamed the heels with a black dress that boasted asymmetric white button detailing and a high neckline.

The senior White House adviser’s high heels were white pumps — a go-to shoe of hers in recent weeks. The sleek power pumps, which appeared to be the Manolo Blahnik BB style that mother-in-law Melania Trump loves, featured a pointed silhouette and a pin-thin stiletto heel.

Ivanka took a tour of Hy-Vee’s Helpful Smiles Technology Center as part of her Iowa trip. Hy-Vee is one of the companies to sign the commitment to Pledge to America’s Workers and has created 2,500 opportunities since signing on. The mother of three was joined at Hy-Vee by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and Secretary of Health & Human Services Alex Azar.

The University of Pennsylvania alum also had the chance to play basketball with Azar — and she did so clad in the same white-hot heels.


Ivanka shared an image of herself shooting hoops on the Des Moines Register newspaper cover. She poked some fun of herself, writing: “Spoiler: I missed the 3 pointer! Will work on my range!”
