What I Have in Common with the Flying Tomato

Shaun White 1,000 Mile BootWith Shaun White? Not much, really. 

He’s a snowboarder; I’m not.
He’s got multiple Olympic gold medals; I’ve got multiple gold cufflinks. 
His nickname is the Flying Tomato; mine is the Well-Dressed Cucumber (at least when someone wants to liken me to a vegetable).
He owns a couple Lamborghini’s; I drive a car that either of his cars would fit inside.
He’s a 23 year old living the life of a 16 year old; let’s just say I’m living the life of a gentleman 3 decades older than I am.

There is one piece of common ground, however. Last night, during NBC’s Olympic coverage, which included an interview with Shaun White. And sure enough, he was wearing a pair of the Wolverine 1,000 Mile Boots. Since my last blog post was already about the 1,000 Mile Boot, I won’t rehash their appeal here. Needless to say, everyone at On The Fly already owns a pair.

How long before Bob Costas places an order for a pair?

Ami developed his vision for Wingtip at a young age; even back in high school where four years of speech and debate meant weekends wearing a coat and tie, he was in his element. Years of working in upscale men’s clothing stores and socializing in cigar shops, coupled with his entrepreneurial spirit, inspired Ami to develop Wingtip, a men’s specialty store and private social club.

  • I actually think they are the RRL Bowery Boot, given that Ralph Lauren is the official clothier of the olympic team.
