In a short time span we’ve gotten a variety of guesses and then Ashley Prime Gula of Quinn Gillespie & Associates just rolled in with the right answer.

Guesses were mostly female. They included Roll Call’s Emily Heil (apologies, Emily, I know you’d never wear any sock-shoe combination like this), NJ’s Erin McPike, Alaskan Public Radio’s Libby Casey and Matt Yglesias, a fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

On to the reveal. It’s Politico’s Patrick Gavin. The blue shoes appear to be Adidas. The striped socks? Store/brand unknown.
