••soled out••

ouch. there goes President Bush's downhome cowboy image. No real cowboy would be caught dead wearing fancy Italian-made shoes.

think again.

President Bush and Saddam Hussein both share the same taste for expensive $1000 Italian handmade designer shoes by Vito Artioli from his London shop. both men have three pairs that are exactly the same as the others'.

Artioli notes that Bush wears size 10 shoes, while Saddam Hussein a 9 and 1/2, and that both bought a plain leather shoe, a brogue pair, and a crocodile pair, all in black.

"It came as a bit of a surprise when I noticed the order forms from both Saddam and President Bush.

"We've been making shoes for important figures for years. But to have both Bush and Saddam in the present climate is a bit odd."
