Fashion Question? Whoopee Booties - The Style Success of the Season

Do you think one of your ancestors might have worn these in 1929?

I found this image on one of my favorite blogs: witness2fashion which is a great resource, especially for "ordinary" clothing styles of the 1920s and 30s.*

I can picture my paternal grandmother Letta Estella Porter (1901-1974) donning a pair, though it doesn't appear that's what she was wearing in this snapshot taken in Dallas, Texas, on August 18th of that year.
