    Looks like you missed the main question in the subject.

    Could it be that he does not want to appear "disconnected" from the common man?

    Those shoes look like they are from "Leather Soul" in Hawaii. Which makes sense since Obama is Hawaiian. I checked out this store when I was in Honolulu and the shoes were first class. High price point, but the removable heel piece was in most of their shoes.

    I have been suspicious of that photo since I first saw it. It is almost certainly a set up.

    we try to keep politics out of the MC forum. there's a separate subforum for any political discussion. this thread is about shoes only.

    I understand.

    But, I really don't think you mean the the process by which people make collective decisions, you actually mean something else,

    When I look at his shoes, I cannot help but look at the rest of his outfit which is very carefully arranged by very highly paid image consultants since the days when he dressed like this:

    Could you help me understand how or why someone with an outfit that is carefully arranged and managed by image consultants would be wearing shoes of that nature? Please write freely.
