WHAT TYPES OF SHOES DID THEY WEAR IN THE 1920's
Are you looking to channel your inner flapper? We have the scoop on vintage 1920s shoes and how they can serve the modern day gal! In previous decades, women's footwear maintained modesty by fully covering the foot with a conservative design fashioned with laces, buckles and buttons. But the 1920s brought about the freedom to challenge the modesty of the time with revealing shoe styles that exposed the ankle and sides of the foot. At the time, the Mary Jane and 1920s style T-strap shoes were popular options to the flapper youth culture that dawned their fashions at parties and clubs. These styles remained a classic through the ages, making their mark in the wooden, block heel styles of the1920s and later the early 50s when the stiletto style was invented. The stiletto design replaced the stacked wooden block heel of decades past with a modern slim sky-high steel rod.
