Mickey Rourke wins Golden Globe for “The Wrestler”
About 20 years ago when founder Mitchell Bobrow of Otomix Athletic Wear was sitting in his office and when a page came over the loud speaker “Mickey Rourke on line three”. Bobrow thought to himself , this is some kind of prank. So he answered the phone “okay who is this?” Its Mickey Rourke, Bobrow immediately recognized his voice the introduction took place. Mickey wanted some of those cool Martial Arts Shoes. So Bobrow sent him a few pairs of shoes and before you know it celebrities from all over the world were calling for the shoes. Mickey had worn them in various print publications with designer clothing. That was the beginning of a great friendship. Last summer Mickey called Bobrow for some grappling shoes to train in for his new movie ” The Wrestler” Bobrow attended the premiere of the Wrestler last month with Mickey. Otomix congratulates Mickey Rourke on his Golden Globe for best actor.
