Gift Shoes



President Bush shows off his custom-made red, white and blue wing-tip shoes that were made especially for him by the Allen-Edmonds shoe factory.

Allen-Edmonds Shoe Corp. says it won't duplicate the patriotic wingtips it gave the president when he visited its Port Washington factory in July.

It was a nice gesture, but I don't think people were going to flock to the stores to buy a pair. I mean, where would you wear those anyway?

I hate to admit it, but I owned a highheeled version of those way back in the day that matched a red/white/blue dress I owned....

rgmb: you know what, you just reminded me of something I had forgotten (or had subconsciously blocked for obvious reasons). When I was in junior high, red/white/blue shoes were in style & I had a pair too. Oh my!

Luckily no photos survive which my children could use for blackmail purposes ;-)

Cubicle - you over-estimate the general public. Remember baby Shiloh, wearning an entirely non-descript baby t-shirt, costing around $50? Yep, sold out all across the US within a day of the photo's appearing. Go figure.

I'm sure the prez really appreciated the gift, and those shoes will never see the light of day again.

caz: I was more concerned about Baby Shiloh's name. Did you ever think that if you exchanged the first letters of Shiloh Pitt's name it would be...

Piloh Shitt.

Don't these people think before they name!
