I’ve found a number of mid-century true vintage sporty-type items by Joyce. One label said Joyce of Chicago, so maybe the same company. Some companies have changed their labels somewhat over the years.
These flats are leather, of course, but only the uppers and interiors. The soles are a good synthetic like Vibram (will last for decades). I always love cut-out styles and these carnival colors are so much fun!
Just the ticket to wear with capris, cigarette pants, a cute dress or skirt – or shorts. ’60’s casual fashions were all about playful and surprising. The ’50’s certainly have those moments, too, in a BIG way but, overall, there’s more loyalty to the conservative classics in the 1950’s.
With the closed toe and elegant styling, these “summer” shoes are easily worn Spring through Fall. My main challenge here is finding the right clothing and colors to accompany them. But, there is always black or white . . . . . . . . . . . .
