1940’s style shoes come in a few pretty styles. The most iconic is the peep toe shoe. Adorable small cut outs at the toe were the first heel style to reveal the front of the foot. Popular colors in the 1920’s were black, tan, army green, mustard yellow, rosy red or white with low to mid Cuban heels. 1940s shoes had a chunky look.The wedge heel was extremely popular in the 1940s for this reason. Wedges could be formal or casual especially in summer with laces that wrap up and around the ankle. The ankle strap pump was another formal shoe while the low heel oxford in plain or two tone combinations was ideal for day wear. Even the black and white saddle shoe was popular with teenagers.
