    The pointed shoes are called “winkle pickers” after the pointed tool used to remove winkles from their shells. Fashionable in the 1950s/ early 60s.

    Thanks. Learned something new again today from reading comics. I had never heard of winkles or winkle pickers.

    Are these the shoes of Rip Van Winkle?
