EL PASO -- Thanks to Nike, celebrating Cinco de Mayo is not limited to a few shots of tequila.

Now you can run in honor of the holiday that celebrates the Mexican army's victory over French forces at the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Nike created a shoe as a tribute to Cinco de Mayo.

The Mexican flag is the basis color of the shoe. Paul Rodriguez's signature is on the shoe's tongue label....

The reader who sent this along under condition of anonymity—he doesn’t want to get Stephanie Graced—quipped,

I wonder if Cardinal Mahony will give them away after Mass? That way his parishioners will be able to more readily flee from ICE agents prowling the streets of Paicoma and East Los Angeles.

And will George Bush wear them at his new library (sic) at SMU? That way the Hispanic janitor won't be able to hear Dubya prowling the hallways late at night looking for a secret stash of hooch.
