Just wanted to drop a line to ask that all of you take pictures of your feet and tweet them with hashtag #solesforsoul or post them on the TFAA's facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/TrackFieldAA.
We're attempting to push back on the USOC for the increasing number of limitations on athletes' marketing rights. Specifically, they are mandating that all athletes wear official sponsor footwear on the awards podium. This is significant as it's usually the one place reserved for the athlete. After speaking with reps from several shoe companies, it's clear that this restriction in particular may have long-term negative implication on sponsorship opportunities. In other words, it might shrink an already limited total sponsorship dollars.
Thank you for your support and for showing your feet!
