1920’s style shoes come in a few different style. The most iconic is the T-strap shoe also known as a T-bar. Popular colors in the 1920’s were black, tan, or white with low to mid cuban heels and decorative sparkling buckles or cut-outs on the straps. Shoes were simple, elegant and very feminine. For evening wear or high fashion wild colors were hand painted on shoes to match dresses or just to be on trend. Blue and white striped bodies with red heels were one short lived trend. Heavy beading over gold and silver silk was another. Shoes were meant to be seen while dancing the night away.
Today’s 1920 style shoes give a nod to the past with the t-strap shapes and a wide variety of colors. Heels are taller. Toes are rounded. Straps lack the detailed cutouts of late 20’s but many make up for that with other art deco inspired decorations. Whether you want a cheap pair of costume shoes or the look of Downton Abbey prestige there are plenty of 1920’s style shoes to choose from.
