I’ve heard of Kitten Heels before…but Mouse Wedgies?

Twenty-five years before someone put goldfish inside a platform shoe some shoe designer, probably inspired by the idea of coachmen mice and glass slippers from the 1950 Disney film Cinderella, decided it might be fun to put mice inside a hollow plastic wedge heel. Before you freak out, I am guessing this was a one-off made as a publicity stunt for a shoe convention and, if worn, probably saw one fashion show. I wouldn’t be too quick to assume the worst fate for the mice either – those guys can chew through a wall!
