Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

AD­VERTS for men’s shoes show­ing top­less women and the phrase “Fancy a pair?” were banned for be­ing de­grad­ing.

The Ad­ver­tis­ing Stan­dards Au­thor­ity had nine com­plaints over Good­win Smith Shoes, based in Stack­steads, Lancs.

It ruled they “ob­jec­ti­fied” women and a spokesman added: “We con­sid­ered top­less and lin­gerie-clad women were ir­rel­e­vant to the shoes and the gen­eral tone was sex­u­ally sug­ges­tive and de­grad­ing.”
