How Far Back Can We Go? (The shoe game)

Discussion in 'PUBLIC Vintage Chatter - Anything and everything' started by Patentleathershoes, Aug 6, 2004.

  1. I know a lot of folks that are posters to this board have amazing collections. I wondered one day how back far back in time some of them go.

    So why don't we find out?

    The first poster (me) will post a picture of a pair of shoes from the 90s, the next person will post from the 80s, after that 70s, etc, etc, until we can go back further no more.

    The only guidelines:
    let's go in order, no decade jumpin : )
    the shoes had to have been owned by you, or in your collection (if you sold them, or if they are currently 4 sale, that's okay too,), but no googling for pics. We want to really see how far back people here can go : )

    Let's go!

    The 1990s


    Here is one of my favorite pairs to wear - a pair of Early/Mid-90s fabric and crystal heels by Nina. (I bought them to attend an event circa 1993ish -if i remember correctly - new at the store. )

    Okay, you may disqualify me for this, because I think they're pretty hideous - but here's one for the 80s. You can't get more 80s than this. To get the ball rolling, I give you....drumroll please....

    Authentic 80's jelly shoes. :P


    Please forgive me - it's all I have, and I like the idea of this thread too much to let it go! Now someone go and get something 70s, quick.

    I don't have much in the way of shoes until you get back to the 1910s...but looking forward to seeing more shoes!

  4. 1970s

    Since no one has beat me to the decade....I have scalded your retinas with these before : ) here are those lime (why am i telling you, when it is so obvious) early 70s platform shoes again : ) Label D'Glady's.

    1920s brocade pumps, bought 2 weeks ago on ebay, and described as 1950s. Thank you, Jonathan, for the shoe education!
