President Bush visited the Allen-Edmonds shoe factory last week and was presented with a pair of red, white, and blue shoes. They were inscribed in the insole: Made exclusively for President Bush.
The company has received numerous requests for a pair of the shoes, but the company will not make any. Mark Birmingham, COO, says they were made “exclusively” for the President, and that’s how it will stay.
Two pairs of the red, white and blue shoes were made for the President in case one didn’t fit right. About 130 employees participated in making the shoes, which were crafted in one day. The second pair will remain on display at the company.
