Vintage Shoes
I see many peope are posting vintage shoes, and I think they deserve their own thread. Do you own vintage shoes or do you dream about vintage shoes, then post them here!
Here is my collection:
1950's bow pumps
1950's snake skin pumps
1920's Mary Janes
1940's Silk lace up shoes
1880's button up boots

Oh Zarina You have the most excellent collection. Are the last ones really from 1880's?

Thank you! I was told they are from the 1880's and they match the fashion of that time quite well, so I believe they are that old.

They are in very good condition to be that old. You're lucky to have them

Zarina ~ those were the great shoes, i don't think these days shoes would be in that good condition after 50-70 years.. Where did you get them?

Thank you girls! I bought them by someone who had been lucky to get hold of a dead stock (isn't it what you call it?). They have never been worn and just waited new and fresh for me! I don't know if I dare to wear them....

Couture_Tribe, where did you buy yours?

I only have one pair of vintage shoes. They are black pumps from 60's or 70's that belonged to my grandmother.
