Pair of Nikita Khrushchev's shoes.

No, this is NOT the pair that he wore at the United Nations on October 12, 1960čafter his death his family threw it out by mistakečbut another pair with which it had been confused.

This book is about public speaking, not the shoe, which is mentioned only briefly (on p. 41). The title itself, however, is indicative of the extent to which the incident at the United Nations four decades ago still resonates in the collective American consciousness.
