Russell Moccasin: The Boots of Presidents and Kings
It was brought to my attention that George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was recently measured for a pair of boots at the 2010 Safari Club International Convention in Reno, Nevada.
George W. Bush with the Russell Team. L to R: Joe Gonyo, Doug Herge, and Richard Sanders.
After Doug Herge, the same man who measured my feet when I visited Russell’s headquarters last year, squatted to take the measurements of the former president’s feet, W. walked away with a pair of Russell Signature South 40 Birdshooters.
A fine choice, by anyone’s standards.
Thanks, Mr. Gannon, for the head’s up.
