Ted Cruz's communications director has some choice words about Marco Rubio's footwear.

According to The Cut, GOP hopeful, Marco Rubio is taking fashion cues from Harry Styles. His stylish black boots even caught the eye of The New York Times and Vanity Fair. After speculation of whether the boots were Giorgio Brutini or Tom Ford, the Cuban-American politician confirmed they were in fact Florsheim.

Why so much concern for the fashion choices of someone from the considerably less fashionable political party? Perhaps Ted Cruz could answer that. His communications director, Rick Tyler, threw shade at Rubio's footwear choices on Twitter:

Politico pointed out Cruz's own obsession with his own boots from a 2013 C-SPAN video. Apparently he prefers ostrich:

"For many years, when I was in private practice and when I was solicitor general, I wore a particular pair of boots, my argument boots. They were black ostrich boots. Litigators are kind of superstitious, so anytime I went into court to argue a case I wore my argument boots. I had them resoled four or five times. When I had the great honor of serving in this body, of being sworn into the Senate, when I was sworn in standing on the steps just in front of us, I wore my argument boots. I have worn them every day since. I don't believe there has been a day on this Senate floor that I haven't worn my argument boots."

Let's hope Cruz and Rubio get their big boy boots on before the real arguments start. I think it's safe to say that both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have boots that are made for walking and that's just know the rest.
