Footwear genius 'always considered legwear'
Despite her passing not being massively reported in 2006 after a good innings of 91 years, Beth Levine - a shoe designer - should be posthumously congratulated by legwear lovers, it is said.

Linda Miller of NewsOK stated that the innovator, who is best known for her famous shoes, created footwear for Patricia Nixon, Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe and Lady Bird Johnson under her husband's self-titled clothing line, Herbert Levine.

However, it is perhaps her Spring-o-lator mules which tights fans should love her for the most - a pair of backless shoes with an elastic liner to keep them on their feet when wearing stockings - something she proved in a sprint across the lobby of a New York hotel.

Upon her death, the New York Times' obituary highlighted her work with Nancy Sinatra, the woman who wore her footwear when singing These Boots are Made for Walkin' when making TV appearances.
