Plimsolls had solid rubber soles about 8 or 9mm thick, to which the canvas was glued without coming up the sides (as on trainers).The effect when running was similar to running without shoes.
Plimsolls were issued to the British military (called 'road slappers' by the common soldiery) until replaced by trainers in the mid-80's.
If white they required hours of application of shoe whitener, if black they were required to be polished until they gleamed.
At 44, i can still wear a bikini and actually proud of it, but DO-NOT in anyway want to come accross cheap.
I have the upmost respect for myself and morals X-tra high, so just not sure how that may appear. The Bikini photos can be down grading, you would probably know for yourself, but they usually aren't.
