EDIT: I once saw a rockabilly dude change his shoes for going out on the town. He changed from one pair of black and white creepers for a house party to another precisely identical pair, which an even thicker sole for bar-hopping. Strange species...
He's wearing George Cox creepers, which is the original company that made them in 1952. He's got good taste, the only creepers that use a true rubber crepe sole, goodyear welted, and double stitched around the eyelets (unlike pale imitations like TUK)
actually creepers are more worn among younger rockabilly guys, not aging ones, unless they are hardcore Teds
