Original Penguin Brewton Cvs Sn This name arose, according to Nicholette Jones's book The Plimsoll Sensation , because the coloured horizontal band joining the upper to the sole resembled the Plimsoll line on a ship's hull, or because, just like the Plimsoll line on a ship, if water got above the line of the rubber sole, the wearer would get wet. In the UK plimsolls are commonly worn for schools' indoor physical education lessons.
Regional terms are common: In London, the home counties , much of the West Midlands , the West Riding of Yorkshire and north west of England they are known as "pumps". However, this seems unlikely as the first citation in the Oxford English Dictionary of "dap" for a rubber soled shoe is a March use in the Western Daily Press newspaper; Dunlop did not acquire the Liverpool Rubber Company as part of the merger with the Macintosh group of companies until Plimsolls were issued to the British military called 'road slappers' by the common soldiery until replaced by trainers in the mid's.
If white they required hours of application of shoe whitener, if black they were required to be polished until they gleamed. As it was commonly used for corporal punishment in the British Commonwealth, where it was the typical gym shoe part of the school uniform , plimsolling is also a synonym for a slippering.
