Follow along with the footwear fashions of the 20th century! On the pages inside, you’ll see how the most popular women’s shoes transformed from being simply utilitarian into truly stylish statements.
We have compiled a fabulous collection of some of the gorgeous boots, booties, heels, pumps, sandals, wedges and loafers that have adorned women’s feet over the course of seven decades.
The drawings are arranged by year, first moving from prim high boots to bootie-type heels during the first half of the twentieth century. Then you will see how sleek, pointy-toed stiletto heels became all the rage in the fifties, before eventually giving way to styles like the wide loafers, platform shoes and Bohemian sandals that were so popular in the sixties and seventies.
Each of the images on the 48 pages inside was chosen from thousands of fashion illustrations — the simple, the ornate, and the many looks in between — published between 1907 and 1976. Some drawings are more basic, while others revisit fanciful ad displays of fashion footwear. They’re all printed on just one side of the paper, while page numbering and other image information appears on the reverse, ensuring the coloring side is distraction-free and suitable for framing.
Now, put your best foot forward and color this set of 150 different vintage and retro shoes in your very own style!
