The Thick-Soled Model 271 Is The Bush Shoe

WHEN Muntader al-Zaidi tossed his shoes, he did not throw just any shoes. As Bloomberg reports:

Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) — The shoe hurled at President George W. Bush has sent sales soaring at the Turkish maker as orders pour in from Iraq, the U.S. and Iran.

The brown, thick-soled “Model 271” may soon be renamed “The Bush Shoe” or “Bye-Bye Bush,” Ramazan Baydan, who owns the Istanbul-based producer Baydan Ayakkabicilik San. & Tic., said in a telephone interview today.

Anorak recommends the curly toed Ottoman slipper, it being the only shoe that comes back to the shoe tosser.

“We’ve been selling these shoes for years but, thanks to Bush, orders are flying in like crazy,” he said. “We’ve even hired an agency to look at television advertising.”

Flying in – and flying out.

Bush shoes are best worn on the hands and come in a size 15 upwards.
