We are sorry, but this product is no longer available.
I was always a big fan of Munsingwear Golf Shirts in the 70's and 80's, but never knew the story behind the Penguin logo. Apparently in 1955, an ambitious salesman named Abbot Pederson traveled to New York City on a sales trip. With time to kill before his flight back to Minneapolis, he decided to pop into a local bar for a few whiskeys, then, taking a wrong turn down a Manhattan street, found himself outside a taxidermist's shop. Deciding he needed a drinking buddy for the flight home (this was the 50's!), he bought a stuffed penguin he saw in the window, named him Pete, and brought him to the next sales meeting, where the subject happened to center around finding a logo for their new golf shirts — and an icon was born! In a matter of years, the Munsingwear Golf Shirt embroidered with Pete's likeness was synonymous with a league of legends including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Arnold Palmer. Today, An Original Penguin continues its unpretentious, unique approach, with fashion-forward designs that make your comfort a priority! This Sneaker features a thickly padded footbed and collar to cushion every step and surround your feet in total comfort. And the distinctive penguin logo on the back heel will show your good taste without being ostentatious, just like the old days! Imported.
