About Rockabilly Shoes

If you are ready to pull out that record player, blast Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes," and dance the night away, then you are ready for a pair of rockabilly shoes. Find you and your dance partner some flashy footwear before you hit the town. The early style of rockabilly music emerged in the 1950s and combined folk tunes, such as American western and bluegrass, with classic rock. Rockabilly fashion combines edgy urban elements with hillbilly charm. Women's styles traditionally showcase platform soles and extremely high stiletto heels. No subtle hues here. Only bold colors and eye-catching patterns will do, with buckles, lace, ribbons, and bows for embellishment. Sky-high pin-up rockabilly shoes hearken back to the classic poster girls of the 1950s. Quintessential men's rockabilly shoes are either an embroidered boot or shiny Oxford with a slight heel. Turn up the music, and shop the vast inventory on eBay for rockabilly shoes that get your toes tapping.
