>Sporty Heels, 1936

>I love mid 30s sportswear styles! I also really love the collegiate influence and the rage for college wear.  So fun and sporty and wearable!  Here’s some shoes from 1936 I wish I could just pick up and wear.  Very fun, very sporty and still chic!

These shoes would cost about $102 in today’s money according to the inflation calculator.  I’m particularly in love with the Berkshire and the Cobbie Shawl… and I think I have a pair suspiciously close to the Hampton in my closet already!  What are your favorites?
Many thanks for your sweet comments on my last post!  I had so much fun dressing the adventurer. :)
Just a little reminder that I’m not going to be available to ship next week, so if you’ve got your eye on something in the shop snag it now ;)  I just put up two lovely 1930s patterns from my personal stash!
Hope you’re having a great week! Is it Thursday already?  Where has the week gone?

    >Ohhh..the hampton and the delmay are my favorites! I am really dying to try some vintage 30's shoes. I am allergic to the chemicals used to tan leather (specifically chromium) which they didn't start using until the late 30's/early 40's and sometimes mid 40's….so I'm thinking it may be a great way for me to actually wear some real leather!

    >Super cute! I love the hampton in particular. That style is pretty in right now, but with stilettos instead of sensible heals! Wish I could find a reasonably priced pair I could walk in.

    >Well, what a coincidence! I just found out that Remix Shoes has recently released a bunch of new styles that look a lot like these… funny how everyone is looking at 1930's shoes today!Here's the link: http://remixvintageshoes.com/newstyles.html I think the "Myrna", the "Zurich" and the "Beverly" would fit the bill, don't you?

    >Love the last 2!and somebody (apart from Remix)does a proper reproduction range – I came across Falbalas in my last visit to Paris at the Marche aux puces – look them up here http://www.falbalas.eu/Can't really seam to find a way to see all the ones they do and a link for buying them online – not that I could anyway.Alas at 200 Euros a pair they refuse themselves to me :)

    >So funny you mention that, Garofit! I saw their beautiful shoes in person when I was there last year. That store is AMAZING, and the shoes were so well done.

    >Funny,My dad's parents brought me up after raising their two boys all through the Depression. My grandmother stressed the 'healthy' attributes of the Red Cross shoes she bought me when shopping for school attire together in the 80's.I have since owned a pair of 30's vintage Red Cross which made a nice connection for me!A funny little fantasy I had over the last years since dabbling in all things vintage: Send my early 30's grandmother a 'shopping list' of vintage patterns and shoes for her to have for me when we would be together later in her life. :o)
