Naughty Monkey Way Up In The Polls
The massive sales spike for the maker of Sarah Palin’s RNC footwear may have designers at London Fashion Week rethinking their offerings. Reminiscent of Dorothy’s ruby slippers with a smidge of skank, Sarah Palin’s red peep-toe pumps come from a San Diego based company called Naughty Monkey. They are currently enjoying a 50% bump in sales thanks to the power of celebrity endorsement. A single appearance of Sarah Palin sporting “Double Dare” did more for the Naughty Monkey brand than numerous wearings by their other famous customer Paris Hilton.
I did some serious investigative journalism on Google and found myself navigating the visually assaultive Naughty Monkey website where they offer a bevy of shoes with names like Nookie, Paris Stroll, Quickie and Bonk Her. It begs the question, what else is hiding in Sarah Palin’s closet?
