TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S STILETTO SLING-BACK HEELS FOR 3-SEASONS – FABRIC AND LEATHER FROM JOHANSEN AGAIN

 STILETTO SLING-BACK HEELS FOR SUMMER - FABRIC AND LEATHER FROM JOHANSEN AGAIN

This is one of my favorite true vintage styles in warm weather shoes.  The fabric uppers and openness are so breezy, cool and feminine.   They are such a cross between dressy and casual that they are very versatile and will look just right almost any time.

I’ve found lots of lovely true vintage shoe styles by Johansen since I’ve been sleuthing and they’re always dependably elegant and well-made. Such a pleasure to find and to wear . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . ..

RECENT FIND! SLING-BACK PEEP-TOE PUMPS MADE BY AN ITALIAN COMPANY – VINTAGE 1950’S

RECENT FIND!  SLING-BACK PEEP-TOE PUMPS MADE BY AN ITALIAN COMPANY - VINTAGE 1950'S

Hardly worn, by Corelli, an Italian company that has been making footwear at least since the 1950’s, it’s not clear exactly when these were made.  Some of the techniques are vintage by our standards, but European shoes – especially by a traditional maker – are probably made to a different (and higher) standard than in the U.S., with more things hand-done.

I’m not going to quibble on these.  Cute 1950’s style, high quality and they fit!

FASHIONABLE FOOTWEAR FROM FIFTIES FLORIDA – TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S

IMG_0854 More “black & white”. From the fab Fifties, these heels with clear vinyl on the uppers are iconic 1950’s and iconic Miami Beach. Well-constructed in leather, of course.

Notice the maker’s name on one shoe and the name of the store that sold them on the other.

MY FAVORITE 1940’S – EARLY FIFTIES PLATFORM SLING-BACK’S IN SUEDE

IMG_0858

     I have so many pairs of shoes that I absolutely love, but these are truly favorites.  So versatile, so comfortable and so “Forties”.  

     All-leather construction, of course, and well-made.  So, I’ll have these for life.  Lovely to not have to say good-bye to favorites – I can just have them repaired eventually.

    Ah, the beauty of true vintage . . . . . . . . . . . . .

TRUE VINTAGE 100% LEATHER DELISO SLINGBACK SANDALS

TRUE VINTAGE 100% LEATHER DELISO SLINGBACK SANDALS

Almost every pair of my true vintage shoes has been a surprise find and this was one of the most delicious! Beautiful Delisos from the 1960’s.

I’m always thrilled when I find 100% leather shoes, because that tells me that the craftsmanship is wonderful and, also, that they will be easy to have repaired. Full leather shoes can last a lifetime, with good care.

Sling-backs are one of my favorite styles. That’s the only style you’ll see here for a while, as I work my way through the collection. They’re fabulous for summer, so now’s the time!
