chukka chukka. wallabies were similar, w/ soles occasionally made of something that loooked like mashed rubber cement. i suppose, then, these would be =rubber soles= [no relation to lennon/mccartney/harrison or starkey]. w/ earth shoes & roots &, soon thereafter, the birkenstock, these were what hippies & hippie-lite types wore [in addition to students of all ages who fit into adult shoe sizes]. the more avant, arty, rocker & rad amongst us did, indeed, wear platforms & vintage spikes--[w/ the occasional six inch Kork-Ease tossed in to be a bit less wild]

In the 60's, everyone wore the same style Chugga Boots to work, evenings, etc. (shoes carried in a bag at all times). They were black leather with a fold down fur front (like a collar folded open). If snow was bad you wore them with the flaps up. They lasted for years, in Michigan weather.
