Rick Scott Owns the World's Ugliest Custom Cowboy Boots
|via The Buzz|
|These boots were made for gawking.|
The Buzz has the scoop on the boots. They feature the words 45th governor embossed in gold, along with the state seal, state flag, and American flag.
Unlike Wilson's hats, many of them the work of a local milner, Scott's shoes aren't the work of a Floridian. They come from RJ's Boots in Houston, which claims to have made boots for every president from Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush (Obama apparently won't be gifted with any, though). Owner Rocky Carroll (who once got the feature treatment in our Houston-based sister paper) has also made boots for the likes of Pope John Paul II, Oprah, Hillary Clinton, and the dearly departed Liz Taylor (who ordered $40,000 boots encrusted in white diamonds, naturally).
In fact, Scott liked the boots so much, he ordered a second pair. And in case you're wondering, he wears a size 10.
