My new old winter shoesFebruary 20, 2013
I am a girl that can handle a great deal of coldness, but the thing I cannot stand are icy feet. However, I have never in my life found proper winter shoes that fit my 1930s/40s wardrobe. Nor could I find the perfect repro's. When I was searching on the Dutch equivalent of Ebay I found, at the last page of my search, thé winter shoes I searched for for a long time. Only, they were a size too big. But I dared to take the risk. One would wear (since many, many years - I have an aversion against it) socks. They arrived pretty quickly and using the socks works fine. I love them. The other thing is, though, they are not from my era; they are from the 1950s but the winter shoes look exactly like the ones from the 1940s.
