Tuesday Shoesday: Spectators & Bows

Almost everywhere you look old is new again. One style of shoe that is frequently paired with polka dots is the spectator shoe. While these shoes were popular in the 1980s, they're not a 1950s style. In fact, the popularity of spectator shoes waned in the 1950s (according to wikipedia) when women chose slingbacks and sandals.

Other styles that are popular right now hail from the 1940s. With a little searching, you might be able to find a pair of vintage shoes from $50 to $175.
