    WHAT WAS THE NAME GIVEN TO SHOES WITH A LONG POINTED TOE, FASHIONABLE AMONGST TEENAGERS IN THE LATE 1950S    AND EARLY 1960S?

'WINKLEPICKERS'   THE REFERENCE IS TO THE PIN NEEDED TO EXTRACT WINKLES FROM THEIR SHELLS IN ORDER TO EAT THEM.  THE NAME, PROBABLE FIRST USED AS A JOKE, QUICKLY PASSED INTO ADVERTISING AND GAINED A DEGREE OF RESPECTABILITY AS A REAL TERM. IT WAS FIRST RECORDED IN THE WRITTEN LANGUAGE IN THE 'SPECTATOR' MAGAZINE IN 1960.
