President-elect Joe Biden turned his love for dogs into a fashion statement on Monday.

During a meeting at The Queen theater in his hometown of Wilmington, Del., Biden opted for a navy blue blazer paired with a red and blue tie and gray slacks. Underneath the outerwear piece, Biden sported a sky blue button up.

On his feet, Biden wore a pair of classic black slip-on loafers that featured a leather upper, lining and sole.

Instead of pairing the shoes with solid-colored socks, Biden opted for a fun pair with dog prints. The socks were navy and featured small light blue dogs all over.

Earlier this month, Biden showcased a more informal side of his wardrobe when he and his wife Dr. Jill Biden joined the athleisure wear trend for a bike ride. The President-Elect wore a black zip-up jacket with a University of Delaware logo patch on the chest. He paired the outerwear piece with navy track-style pants, matching socks, and a helmet with coordinating blue hues. For footwear, Biden chose a pair of Asics sneakers.

The shoes appear similar to the brand’s Gel-Nimbus 22 running shoe silhouette in the Black/Classic Red colorway. The sneakers feature a mesh upper construction with the brand’s signature FlyteFoam Lyte Technology midsole, removable Ortholite sockliner, and gel cushioning technology on the forefront and heel of the shoe for shock absorption, foot support, and traction. The shoes retail for $120 and are available for purchase on

For the outing, the soon-to-be first lady styled a lighter-hued outfit and also chose neutral colorways. She wore a striped zip-up jacket from Under Armour that was designed for Pelotonia Bike Race, an annual two-day bike race in Colombus, Ohio. This charitable garment still is available on the resale market and currently is listed for $25 on She styled the item with a pair of black leggings with a white stripe detail near the hem and a pair of grey mesh sneakers.
