Model 271 brogues: the shoes to throw
Ramazan Baydan, proprietor of the Bayden Shoe Company of Turkey, holds up a model 271 brogue as thrown by Muntadhar al-Zaidi at America's one and only chimp the other day. The shoes sell for about £25 wholesale and the company is planning to rename them as Bush Shoes for sale to the western market.
As things stand the company has received 300,000 orders for the model 271 brogues this week alone and has been forced to take on a 100 new workers to help it meet the surge in demand.
