Something Special Afoot

Mouseketeers know Mickey's own Mickey Mouse shoes are extra soft and comfortable. They're so flexible you feel sure-footed as a deer. And the full cushioned insole lets you walk on clouds. They're tough, too, for lasting wear . . . and so good looking. Tell mother about the Mouseketeers' Special Shoes. They're only $4.95 to $6.95 depending on size.

It's been a little while since we visited some good old fashioned pop culture from the 1950s. This ad for Trimfoot Shoes appeared on the inside front cover of the December 1956 issue of Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Club Magazine. If you look closely, you'll see John Hench's 25th Birthday portrait of Mickey being offered as part of a mail-in premium, along with the official Mickey Mouse Club Ring.

"Sure-footed as a deer" ... that's great! Love to see old magazine ads like this. I think the Trimfoot shoe people are still around.
