Winklepickers

I wore Winklepickers in the early eighties. They were a shoe fashioned from the design of the original Winklepicker shoe in the 50's. Winklepickers had a spike heel or thin stiletto and VERY sharp pointed toes.Some designers still make them but with a more exaggerated longer toe than I remember.The ones I wore had more of a kitten heel-though spiked.

I wore my Winklepickers to all the gigs in London (The Marquee, Electric Ballroom etc) until they had holes in the soles and put cardboard inside to lengthen their life. I wasn't so rich back then!
