They are climbing shoes called Solda's after Gino Solda, an Italian climber with notable routes in the Dolomites. Solda was friendly with Hans Kraus and Kraus got the only climbing gear store in NYC at the time, Camp and Trail, to import Solda's. Lots of New York climbers wore them for a while until the next fashion hit town.

Nowadays we'd call them approach shoes with non-sticky rubber. Nov 8, 2016
