Obama's Jordans

The Chicago Cubs are making a rare January visit to the White House (and that’s not a joke about the Cubs winning the World Series) to be honored for their recent World Series championship.

While it is customary to bring a custom jersey with the president’s name with them as a token of appreciation, Dexter Fowler is bringing another nice little personalized gift for President Barack Obama; a custom pair of Jordans designed specifically for the President.

I’m certainly no shoe aficionado, but it doesn’t take one to recognize that this is one sweet package, and the style is top of the line. From the official presidential seal on the tongue of the shoe and the signature of the president along the bottom, not to mention the high class package it is shipped in, this is a shoe fit for a president.

You just have to wonder now if Obama is going to lace thee up when he hits the court, now that he will have a little more free time to get on the court.
