About 1920 s Shoes

Shoe-loving ladies have the Roaring Twenties to thank for the beautiful heels they ooh and aah over today. The higher hemlines of that rowdy decade meant that 1920s shoes could finally be seen, so burgeoning fashionistas took that unique chance to make a style statement literally from head to toe. These shoes feature details like sassy straps, metal buckles, bows on the toes, and sparkling trim that make each pair unique and flirty. Slightly pointier toes create the illusion of longer legs. Along with a playful flapper sense of style, 1920s-style shoes are also sensible by today's standards. Coupled with T-bar or Mary Jane straps to keep them secure on your dancing feet and a lower, wider stacked heel height, shoes from the 1920s can be quite comfortable. They give a retro kick to modern outfits, add feminine charm to cuffed boyfriend jeans, and a playful dash of pizzazz to a simple monochromatic ensemble. Authentic pairs of 1920s vintage shoes are typically made of leather, so even stiff pairs worn down over time can be brought back to life with polish and elbow grease. Shop for 1920s shoes from the vast inventory of women's footwear on eBay and channel your own inner flapper every chance you can.
