This fall clanking on the sidewalk, gliding over the dance floors and stomping down runways will be 1940s inspired heels. Included in the revisited style are v-shaped vamps and closed-in booties. A modern twist on the vintage fashion is the assortment of heels incorporated. This is my favorite part!


Sky-high heels are thrown into the mix, but the low and casual heel that’s more genuine to the era is also sticking around. The short chunky, almost rectangular heel will also be seen in the blend. You can stick to the lower heel during the many shopping trips and daily coffee runs, while extending your legs with the platforms during a night out with the girls!

Check these out for starters!

    If you’re creative enough, you can wear those heels along with some Urban Tshirts. I think that would definitely be different, yet stylish.
