Weyenberg Massagic shoes: “Keep her where she belongs”

This ad is said to have ran in Playboy for Weyenberg Massagic shoes in 1974, according to info found on the Ms. Blog.

Sure, Playboy is known for its images portraying women in awkward positions, but naked next to a pair of wing-tipped Pilgrim shoes? What the heck is that supposed to mean? Our guess is it stemmed from a strange shoe fetish that the advertiser had that he/she assumed the rest of the world shared.

Well, the joke’s on them, and it’s not funny, nor does it cause us to want to buy shoes.
