I recall long ago, certain tough guys at school liked their clickers on their boot heels, but I always wondered about them, steel on a terrazzo floor, aren't they slippery? And if you walked across a hardwood floor...
Anyways, they're still being manufactured.
Had them on my Beatle boots. Run a few steps and then you could slide the length of the school hallway balancing on your heels. Very cool looking, unless you wiped out (which happened more than I care to remember). I think our school eventually banned them.
Dad put them on our shoes back in the 50's - I always thought Blakey's was just a nickname, didn't know they were the manufacturer.
You could get sent home from our High school if your shoes had cleets
Beatle boots! You're dating your....--- ourselves! Haven't heard that term in decades!
Evidently, they are still selling them in the UK.
I used to nail soda bottle caps to the heels of my shoes when I was a kid.
