Jiffy Foot


Back in the 1960' s and 1970's...there was a widespread outbreak of  "jiffy foot"   here in the Southen U.S.   It was a condition that slowly spread and blemished  children's bare feet.  The pads of their feet became calloused and irreversibly blackened and remained that way into young adulthood.  The cure?   Shoes!   ( and health board policies of  "No shirt, No shoes, No service!"  )

"Jiffy Foot" is used to describe what bare feet look like after they have shuffled around on a dusty Jiffy Food Store floor....
