Cinderella could be a chavista if she wanted to

La Patilla brings the latest rage in capitalo-revolutionary shoes.  With even models in red for when you march in the streets to support your beloved leader's fight against capitalism and consumerism.  Start at a very popular price for "el pueblo" of a mere 67.50 USD.  I suppose it is for El Pueblo in Marin County malls....  (Hat tip Caro).

    Plus, when I clicked on the shoe shown in the picture on the post, it suggested "other products you might like" such as this t-shirt http://www.zazzle.com/venezuela_flag_shoes-167437722953791318

  6. Please let us hope that Chavez's image does not truly become iconic like Che's and we have to see it on banners and T-shirts for another 50 years.

  7. Roy, I think that's exactly it. They are pushing hard to create a symbol, no doubt.
    I thought that when I saw his action figure some time ago, now these things.
    I wonder, who buys these "esperpentos" online and for so much money???

    One needs a Thai attitude in this situation. Thai people consider the foot to be the dirtiest and lowliest part of the body, and the head the most respected and highest part of the body. So with that attitude Chavez is in his right place.

  10. Soon, her slippers will be gold plated thanks to the "shrinkage" on the gold that Hugo is bringing home.

  12. If we attend a press conference by Chavez, do we get to throw those shoes at him?

    There is a lot of kick-back money in those shoes. Someone is paying $67.50 for a bunch of sneakers that cost <$10 to manufacture so that some Chavista can wear Guccis.

  14. And let's have a thought for the indentured labor that stitched these shoes in the communists paradises of china or vietnam.

    The capitalist that made these communist shoes did not count the stars properly.

  21. Good one Glenn! That's hilarious! I like your too Firepigette. Hehe
    Theo whole thing is just plain cheesy..

  22. 1979BP, perhaps one could say Chavez has already left his mark of nearly every kid diaper world-wide...

    Glenn, the one you see in the picture has 8 stars, you just can't see them all from that angle. Follow the link and check the top and front views. (I made the same observation, and checked it out to be sure.) Other Venezuela models have seven...and no Hugo. True capitalists are happy to play both sides of the aisle.

  23. Every American citizen that buys these shoes also voted for Obama. Every single one.

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
