TOUCHING: America Comes Together, Celebrates Bush 41 In True H.W. Fashion!

Share this:

Former President George H.W. Bush was remembered on Wednesday with a funeral service held at the National Cathedral — but while only a select few were able to attend that service, many Americans paid their respects from home with a fashion trend borrowed from 41 himself.

For years, Bush had made statements with his socks, whether they simply added a bit of color in a world of black, gray and navy blue or they spoke to some deeper meaning.

Bush even chose special socks, covered with books, to honor his late wife Barbara when she passed away. It was a nod to her tireless work with children’s literacy programs.

The hashtag #socksforBush soon appeared, along with dozens of photos of Americans breaking out their wildest footwear to honor his memory.

Here are some of the best.

And if you found yourself without a pair of crazy socks today, fear not: John Cronin of John’s Crazy Socks, who sent Bush his superhero socks for World Down Syndrome Day, has designed a special tribute pair in honor of the former president who became his friend after they bonded over — you guessed it — socks.
