Matter of fact, my most embarassing fall ever was with toe clips.

You could avoid falling by walking too.
I don't know people ages here, but to date myself, I rode a LOT in high school. This was before "clipless" pedals. We wore hard soled shoes that had a groove cut in the bottom. That grove dropped over the trailing edge of platform pedals, then the to strap locked your foot in. There was no unclipping. You had to unstrap. If you had the strap tight enough, and you didn't unstrap, your foot was NOT coming out of that cage, no matter what. I never toppled, but my friend/riding partner fell over behind me quite a bit. It stopped surprising me after a while.
