Little Boots

This illustration is from a children's activity book (c.1961) I found in Ludlow (again). It was issued by a footwear company called Kiltie.

I hadn't any intention of doing a back-to-school related post, it just turned out that way after I came across the image of the three jolly jumping girls in their Kiltie shoes.

My own feet were shod in Clarks as a child - many of them heavy, clumpy numbers that I tried to keep crease-free in the toe area by walking in a flat-footed kind of way that irritated my Mum.

And perhaps this is revealing too much, but I remember wanting to wear the mint condition shoes in bed as well. Really.
