Ok. I know…I am not *that* old. But gee–I do remember these in the early 1970’s. And Sears still had them in their shoe department when I was a wee one.
As I recall–it was slightly terrifying to stick your feet into that big scary machine. But I may be getting this story mixed up with the time that my red rubber rain boot got stuck and went UNDER the slats of the escalator.
Good times in the Machine Age–wot?
