We first honed in on former President George H.W. Bush’s fancy for flashy footwear last April when he wore hot pink socks to the dedication of his son’s presidential library, the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, Texas.

It seems like 41 only becomes more dapper with age. Between sky-diving on his 75th and 85th birthdays, and singing with hospital staff during a hospitalization for bronchitis, he’s quickly turning into everybody’s favorite great-grandpa. And whether he’s attending a commencement ceremony or meeting a gaggle of cheerleaders, his ankles are always dressed for the occasion. And it pays off, literally, as the Republican National Committee recently raised $1 million by giving supporters who made donations of $35 or more a pair of socks with the former president’s signature over orange, yellow, blue and green stripes.

So in honor of his 90th birthday today, here’s a glimpse at some of Bush 41’s sporty ankle-wear, an update to last year’s list that is sure to knock your socks off.
