A variety of shoe styles was available during this era. Rounded toes were seen with wide, thick heels. Pumps and flat shoes were available, and ankle strap styles with moderate heels also appeared. Slip-on styles, lace-up shoes and buckle shoes were all worn. Spectator or two-tone shoes appeared in the early thirties. Rubber companies were actually endorsed for their shoe soles in the Sears’ Catalogue.
Shopping for shoes recently I yearned for a style reminiscent of the 1930s, albeit at a bargain price. So, now that I have just a couple of twenties to spend on a pair of shoes I want to make sure my shoe purchase is fitting with the times. Hmmmm .... what to choose from?
Back in the day, theseVia Spiga shoe boots (must have for this season), a to-die-for pair of black leather and suede for a cool $187.16 (on sale from $259.95) would already be in my closet!
But, now I'm shopping for something close to the look, and voila! I'm a lucky girl. For only $29 I can get peep-toe shoe boots from Newport News.
