How did you get Physical Training shoes from "Gutta percha shoes" ?? I can not get the image to come up and when I googled Gutta percha shoes I got pages and pages of images but NO SHOES??

Just trying to learn is all. I must assume you are referring to Plimsolls??

I know what plimsols are. I have a pair in my collection somewhere. I was more curious as to how Michael figured out the shoes in question were plimsols. I see no image, other than the one you posted, and I am not familiar with the original terminology used to describe them.

Clifford;

I merely posted the image again since you and Jon stated that the original link didn't work.

Cheers
