Narrow-Footed Wonders

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

I’m going to begin chronicling pairs of shoes that I would shell out lots of money for, if only they were wider than 2.5 inches at the ball of the foot. I don’t know what sort of lives these 1920’s women led, but they must not have taken a step barefoot in their lives, have subjected themselves to foot binding, and been carried around in a sedan chair.

If you have narrow feet, for the love of everything wonderful, please start buying all these amazing vintage shoes!

I have three pairs in desperate need of reproduction this week (Re-mix Vintage Shoes, I hope you are taking notes. ;) ):

Black leather Mary Jane, with two straps meeting in the center before crossing the top of the foot, and the cutouts are just screaming AWESOME. Cutouts from the top, cutouts from the side, this shoe looks good at every angle.

There’s no one angle that really captures the awesomeness of this shoe, but I’m a sucker for green two tone heels and this pair is really unique in the way that the two shades work with the straps and curvature. This would look awesome in purple, too.

View #2 – check those straps!

GAH! These are just too much, the snake skin, velvet, stitching, cutouts… *passes out*
