The Underground Paul winklepicker shoe is a two-eyelet, flat-heeled shoe in black leather

Underground winklepickers. In the 14th century, long-toed shoes called poulaines were de rigueur for fashionable young noblemen. The longer the toe, the greater the status symbol. While the Teds predominantly wore Creepers, winklepickers were embraced by mods, who paired them with Italian suits and button-down shirts.
The shoes became notorious once more as a symbol of the street brawls that erupted between rival gangs of mods and rockers.

By the 80s the winklepicker’s countercultural cache was secure – further reinforced when adopted by new wavers and new romantics.

The winklepicker endures, the original shoe for non-conformists.
