One for the (Style) Hall of Fame: Tom Waits’s Pointed Shoes

March 15, 2011

“When I started looking for pointed shoes, I used to go to Fairfax on Orchard Street in New York City, one of those little pushcart guys. I’d say, ‘You got any pointy shoes?’ They would go way, way in the back and come back with a dusty box, blow the dust off the top, and say, ‘What do you want with these things? Give me twenty bucks. Go on, get outta here!’ And that was the beginning.” —Tom Waits, 1999, on his trademark footwear
