Something very big and very hyped has happened across the pond. You couldn’t really escape knowing that America picked its next president as election fever took over. On November 4th, millions of Americans woke up, flexed their fingers for the vote, but struggled to find suitable attire for the big day. Some will have opened their wardrobe doors and were in a quandary as to which item of clothing best reflected their political inclinations. The footwear department can be a particularly troublesome area, but fortunately TOMS shoes have picked up on this gap in the election-wear market and designed some canvas shoes which are screen-printed with some delightful election encouragement. Not only are all of TOMS shoes ethically sound (for every pair purchased they’ll give another pair to a child in need), they’re also great to wear as you walk to your local polling station because with these puppies you can strut away supporting either the Democrats or Republicans, or if you’re still indecisive – tick-tock, tick-tock – buy a pair of each and see which looks better on the foot.
And if shoes aren’t your thing, why not have your chosen potential president encrusted on your finger with some electoral ring bling by Hidalgo? In either light or dark blue these enamel, gold and diamond rings surely win the vote. I wonder if McCain wears one on his pinkie.
