The Wonder Shoe! 1964 version

These days, the exact same shoe would be advertised as a “minimalist” shoe that “shortens your stride”.

My uncle remembers running in these.  He says, “It was a terrible shoe with a ripple sole, but better than a sneaker.”

$13.95 in 1964 is $101.88 today.  A typical Thom McAn shoe in 1964 might have cost $9.95.
