A fun look back at the history of shoes
The other day I was watching Audrey Hepburns’s classic flick ‘My fair lady’ and I couldn’t help but get awed by the gorgeous shoes she flaunted. These shoes were a blend of elegance with fun, especially the kitten heels and gorgeous ballerinas. There’s something about vintage shoes that has a timeless appeal. Even if you wear them today (take a cue from Kate Middleton), they still look as fashionable!
As per historians, there are some Spanish cave drawings showing humans wearing animal skin wrapped around their feet. So, shoes have been a vital part of our history too. Thong sandals were traditionally worn by the Egyptians, Hindus and even Greeks. Wearing vintage type shoes can be a fun throwback way to hark to years ago.
There have been many different types of shoes throughout the years that have transcended the decades like boots, Mary-Jane’s and even normal heels. Check out crown vintage shoes, which have evolved from the classic ballerinas. The Crown Vintage Daniella is perfect for someone looking for a flat with a little more volume. You will love the adorable T-strap flat that is two-toned and features fun details to give your look dimension.
The leather upper adds to the style factor while the T-strap with adjustable ankle buckle gives ample support. The perforated siding ensures breathability with comfort while the rubber sole makes it more wearable all year through. This take on the ballerina is sure a sensible vintage pick for the urban-chic girl.
Vintage shoes can be worn with a modern twist or be retained in their unique style. Take pumps for instance. They have been experimented in so many different kinds of heels like pencil, wedges or even flats. Then there’s the peep-toe that makes this closed shoe type more wearable during the summers.
So, pick a few vintage designs this season to experiment with these fun shoes.
