In 1904, the cartoonist sold the license to many companies to use characters from Buster Brown to advertise their products.

One of these vendors, Brown Shoe Company, let the style of the shoes become more widely known after hiring actors to play the characters from the comic in nationwide tours. Until then, such styled shoes were called "Mary Jane".
