I have a pair of shoes named after me

Posted 07 September 2012 - 04:48 PM

Behold, the Knowles style shoe from Clarks!

Knowles is now a proud owner of Knowles shoes:

And there was much rejoicing!

Knowles are attractive


The people have spoken!

Anyone else have the esteemed privilege to have clothing items named in their honor?

I have many movies and buildings named after me, but I have not seen clothing items named after me yet. Need to see if I can find any.

I suppose I have a number of pubs named after me, but that can be said of almost anyone with an Irish last name. :P

Did a quick google and was surprised how many of my particular Mick are out there.

I don't believe it, some UK company markets a shirt with my name on it! I'd consider getting one, but at 65 I think I'll hold off a bit.

you're looking in the places man, with a "namara" in your name, you're better off looking in Japan or some other country that uses kung fu letters :P

Things named after me: one song, two locations, several meteorological events, two films, a poem, a programming language, and these saucy concept shoes:

You're SOL? Or are you saying you're more about the Alaska State Standards?

When I tell people my first name, I 98% of the time, get associated with a horrible group of untalented "brothers" from "Disney".

EDIT: @ B9, Using my amazing stalker skills, I managed to find the original photo. Shame they only are a pair of overpriced concept shoes =(

Is your first name Nick Jonas?

And congratulations on learning the name of every cheap floozy in every 80s movie ever made! :P

B9:

My first name is Jonas.. :(

Actually I thought of the website that offers video lessons, that almost has the same name as you! =D

EDIT: Had hit the post button just before I saw your edit...

If you sing this to me I will slap you in the face and defriend you on Facebook.

I know Beeneen's full name. It has a funny word in it.

I just pulled up the lyrics (didn't listen to your link... the song kind of annoys me)...

and it sounds to me like this Glen guy is really expecting you to come back to clean his pipes again next summer. And if you don't show up, he'll be suicidal and wait to dry hump you in the afterlife.

That's my interpretation anyway.

Maybe you should just stop getting into vans with guys named Glen.

there's a guy in the bible named after me that's the grandson of the founder of Israel...I'm almost certain he's named after me and not the other way around...like 99.935% sure.

Yeah? Well Jesus copied my style. All his swag, he got from me.

Off topic, I genuinely plan to dress as Jesus and crash a Mormon convention (or something equally funny).
