There are many styles of vintage shoes out there some are comfortable and practical and some are dressy. There are different eras from 20s to 70s mainly depending where you shop.
Flats are better for dancing like ballet pumps with straps ,flat sandals and plimsolls especially for jive and rock n roll or just for sheer comfort.
There are a number of heel designs like courts and t-bar depending on the era 20s to 40s era heels,such as the Gatsby stylewere more sturdy than the 50s stilettos style later on.
There are many shops who specialize in vintage style shoes but looking on the high street I got my ballerina pumps.
Lindy Bop, Collectif ,JoeBowns, Banned Retro,Ruby Shoo and Irregular Choice just a few brands in the UK.
Collectif shoes do cater for many eras up to the 1980s!
You can buy directly on the website or a lot of online independent vintage clothing sites or vintage clothes shops sell these brands.
Hopefully there are plenty of choices on these sites and I hope some of these sites are available where you live.
I wrote this post due to one of my readers asking for the best shoes to go with her dress. I hope she found the perfect shoes.
Clockwise Top Navy ballet pumps with gold trim,Deichman Joe Brown Hawaiin leather sandals, Collectif Lulu Hun Bonnie Wedges, Joe Brown Tropical Diamante Pinapple Sandals
I got the Tropical and Hawaiian styles to go with my Tiki dress and flowery dresses. The heels are the glamorous with 50s gingham and cherries which will go with my red coat dress. And the ballet shoes go with anything.
Hope you enjoyed the read and found it useful.
Bye for now 💋oxo
