The shoe was originally, and often still is in parts of the United Kingdom, called a "sand shoe" and acquired the nickname "plimsoll" in the 1870s. This name derived, according to Nicholette Jones' book The Plimsoll Sensation, because the coloured horizontal band joining the upper to the sole resembled the Plimsoll line on a ship's hull, or because, just like the Plimsoll line on a ship, if water got above the line of the rubber sole, the wearer would get wet.
Thankyou, Wikipedia!
Chris: And thank you too Penny!
The man on the bench looks unimpressed...
Chris: Yes he does Larry. Maybe he as done greater things than Mr Plimsoll?
