Quite a slogan Bakers shoe company used in the late 70’s for their backless heels! Who knew years ago that this term, spurred on by the growth of dangerous and lethal STD’s, would evolve into something XXX rated? As funny as that is, what’s NOT funny is that these shoes were were all the rage: seen everywhere, worn by everyone. Often when spotted at the disco (or even at local high schools across the country), they were paired with designer jeans like Sasson, Jordache or Gloria Vanderbilt and a halter or tube top. Other choices to accompany these heels were DVF wrap dresses and various types of delightfully swingy skirts, especially those that covered bathing suits at fashionable pool parties. They were sexy, comfortable and a legendary part of disco fashion.
btw…. I want a pair right now!
