Anti-endorsement? This is the opposite of a celebrity saying how much they love a product. Instead, the manufacturer of the product insults the celebrity, or, in this case, the President of the United States. An Istanbul shoemaker is saying that it was his Ducati Model 271 black leather oxford that was chucked at George Bush. He has since then received thousands of orders for this style of shoe and is starting a new campaign: "Goodbye Bush, Welcome Democracy." Stats for Footwear Anti-Endorsements Trending: Older & Chilly
