By happy coincidence, the clever inventors at Modern Mechanix recently posted an article from 1930 about a miniature golf impresario who was frustrated by the holes left in his pristine greens by the dagger-sharp heels of his lady patrons. His response was the shoe cover at left. And that's not all. While it doesn't seem that Mr. J.H. Binks ever patented his invention, a couple of years later one Albert W. Givens came up with his own somewhat simpler and more elegant solution to the same problem, right, and received patent no. 1875806 for his pains.
Since the patent is long expired, might Counterfeit Chic suggest a classically inspired version, perhaps in the shape of a caryatid or a muscular Atlas?
