Yesterday, I was doing a little research into shoes from 1906 (does that give you a hint as to what story I’m working on?).
Anyhoo… I couldn’t help but notice how similar some of the styles are to shoes we wear today.
I guess in my head, I still picture shoes being more of the button-up ankle boot variety even though I know they had many, many options from which to choose. The sensibility of the shoes, along with their finely-crafted design, really captured my interest.
Here are a few of my favorite finds:
I think the big, thick ribbon is a fun offset to the otherwise serious design of the shoe.
Do you think your feet would have been happy back in 1906?
