"Chris Christie, caught today in New Hampshire wearing mismatching socks, models shoes that are more typically seen on the campaign trail."

There is no better way to understand just how badly the US mental healthcare system is in disarray than to read media outlet coverage of political campaigns.

Beatles boots.. wore those in the mid 60s too...

Curious George said...

I think they also caught Chris Christie wearing Hillary's ankles.

Cuban Heels and Canadian bacon. No wonder the founding fathers did not trust newcomers to be President.

Rubio is the perfect combo of W and Obama

Mark said...

Excepting the square toe styling, they aren't much different than cowboy boots like Ted Cruz wears.

They just have a sense of style.

Austin Powers wore them better.

Rubio's boots have a Latin tinge to them, the heels a bit like those favored by Flamenco dancers. They aren't over the top and likely don't have metal taps.

Christie is wearing Allen Edmonds Park Avenue cap toe shoes that are in need of repair/replacement/care. A very typical shoe and clearly unkept for a reason.

Does Rubio suffer from short person syndrome, wherein one must be bigger than life to overcome not being able to see over others' heads?

And what is with the stovepipe pants? Haven't seen those for a long time.

How could Michael discern that Christie's cap-toe Oxfords were made by Allen Edmonds and not Alden Bootmakers?

The campaign is moving along at a brisk pace.

Rubio is obviously being portrayed favorably, and glamorously, here, as is the MSM's wont.

Poor Chris Christie! My gosh, could they have gotten a more sad sack shot than that?

Big Mike said...

OMG, a Floridian of Cuban descent owns a small boat for fishing and wears boots with Cuban heels! Unelectable!

David said...

Rubio is short. Thus the boots.

Andrew said...

Christie's shoes are more likely Alden cap toes, note AE cap toe has perforations on the cap seam. For all we know the shoes are even more expensive and English made. Rubio's shoes are probably Italian, Chio baby.

Here is how. Alden has five eyelets and Allen Edmonds six.

Andrew

AE cap toes, Park Ave. model, are not perforated. A different model not the ones shown. Christies shoes have six eyelets as far as I can tell and AE is the six eyelet maker, not Alden. Plus Alden more expensive

Bret Baier is also wearing something peculiar this evening.
It is black so that I can't quite tell what it is, but it is not a conventional suit.

Lionheart said...

Are you sure the lighting doesn't make the socks look to be different colors?

Bret Bair (on Special Report) was outdoors, wearing a black overcoat
