Pedal pushers are calf-length trousers that were popular during the 1950s and the early 1960s.[1] Often cuffed and worn tight to the skin, they are related in style to Capri pants, and are sometimes referred to as "clam diggers". The name "pedal pushers" originated from the style originally worn by cyclists, but the style quickly became identified with teenage girls.

They are the subject of "Pink Pedal Pushers", a song by Carl Perkins. A novelty song from the 1950s on MGM records was called "Skin Tight, Pin Striped, Purple Pedal Pushers" by Sheb Wooley, the same person who had his biggest hit with "Purple People Eater".
