As I went into my walk-in closet to select a pair of shoes today I started thinking about how important shoes are in the grand scheme of fashion be it modern or vintage. Often times a new pair of shoes vintage or otherwise can be the finishing touch to a new outfit or something you've had in your closet because it was missing that certain something to top it off.
Shoes have changed throughout history. At one time in the courts of kings and queens one could tell the rank of any lady and gentleman by the length of their shoes. Shoes have been made from all sorts of fabrics and materials. What they were made of often times was affected by the state of the world around us be it peaceful times or times of war. Synthetics kicked in heartily during WW II when ration coupons were needed to purchase leather shoes.
So without further ado I'm featuring fabulous shoes throughout the more recent ages from the 1920s up to and including shoes of today. All the shoes shown here are available at Specialist Auctions by our esteemed vintage and modern clothing sellers.
