Defense Shoes

These spiked "Defense Shoes" introduced in 1955 didn't catch on as women's fashion.



Des Moines Register - Oct 3, 1955



Perhaps because of negative reviews in the press.



But I wonder if they might have been the inspiration for the spiked shoes worn by Rosa Klebb in 1963's From Russia With Love.
