Royal Vintage Shoes, an offshoot of American Duchess, sells vintage inspired and reproduction shoes from their own line of shoes and from other lovely shoe makers. When under the American Duchess umbrella, they did some truly lovely custom pre-order shoes in limited runs and I was excited to see the owners branch out and create an entirely separate line for just us 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s gals. Their first line under Royal Vintage came out this past fall with some wonderful basics, but I felt the pumps/slingbacks weren’t practical for dancing and the heels were too high to be accessible to most dancers, which is why you didn’t read about it on this blog. Fast forward to now and let’s just say we’ve hit the mother load.
Beginning March 23, you can pre-order these amazing Royal Vintage Shoes – you can tell that the owners love history and know it well, based on their style and color selections. These shoes, which they are calling “Deco Darlings,” are anything but basic, yet I can see them going with so many things! Introducing the “Lillian,” a Mary Jane two tone heel in navy/white and sage/white; the “Evelyn,” a canvas and leather oxford in brown/cream and brown/navy; and the “Roxy,” a dressy Mary Jane in gold and silver.
