  1. Men’s shoes from the 50s early 60s called st Louis orange a heavy brouguedwingtip shoes popular in st Louis area can’t remember the maufacturer.

  2. As a boy in the 1950s I remember a pair of laceeless shoes called “Innerlockers” ?? where the tongue of the shoe was like a lever in which you’d pull it up to open and down to close, or “lock” it. I can find these shoes nowhere. It’s like I dreamed all this. Anyone with knowledge of these shoes adn where they can be ound?

    • I had a pair of white ones in the first grade. This would have been about 1956 or so. We called them “Cat” shoes because we saw the cool cats on TV wearing them. I’ve been looking for a picture for about a year but haven’t found one.

  3. What about long biker boots with the buckles greasers wore those and among the rockabilly culture there still pretty popular? 🙂
