Vintage Inspired: Shoes

At the Vintage Expo last weekend, one of the vendors, Rubaiyat, was selling some pretty great locally handmade shoes. I have big feet, which means vintage shoes in good shape aren't always easy to come by for the clunkers I walk around on. The great thing about Rubaiyat is, they say "if you can dream it, we can make it." They've been making handcrafted shoes for 40 odd years now, so they know what they are doing.

I only grabbed a few shots before they asked me to stop taking photos (when i'm just giving them free press. hmph), but hopefully you can get a sense of the fun chunky styles and bold leathers that they use:

Another good resource for reproduction vintage shoes is always ReMix Vintage.
