Born from sub cultures, the winklepicker actually originates from the Crakow, which is a Polish shoe (think Krakow)and had a really long toe held up by a whale bone! So over the years, Teddy boys wore them and then the mods had a go. They loved the cuban heel as we see in this boot and wore sharp suits and rode their mopeds. They had attitude and oozed style. Goths also love the winkle picker but mostly wore flats with buckles. Mind you, there is something punk about these zippy red babies. BUT lets not compartmentalise.
