President Clinton was a shoo-in. Or make that a shoe-in.
A pair of Clinton's top-of-the-line Nike Air 180 running shoes - size 13s, white with an orange swoosh - were inducted Monday into the Brockton Shoe Museum in Brockton, Mass.The shoes are on a display table with baseball legend Ted Williams' cleats and boxing giant Primo Carnera's size 23 dress shoes.
And no, they don't smell, said John Learnard, head of the Brockton Historical Society. But they do have dirty soles and a few scuff marks.
There are 11 pairs of shoes in the museum's celebrity collection, including ones belonging to boxers Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler, both natives of the city, about 25 miles south of Boston.
