There are some sites that offer really good reproduction footwear. Here are three I think offer some of the best:
www.sarahjuniper.co.uk – S.B. Juniper offers some really impressive examples of 18th century footwear on her website. I don’t think she makes any ‘off the rack’ examples, so you would have to order them bespoke which means they will be expensive, but it also means they should fit well. Most ready to wear repro 18th century shoes are workwear so its nice to see a place that offers fashion footwear from the era.
www.american-duchess.com – I have ordered shoes from here for mannequins and I am happy with the quality although I suggest a black felt pen along the sole edge to improve the period look. The 18th century Dunmore in black look excellent as do the Nankeen Regency boots. The Gettysburg side laced boots (seen here) could be improved with a different lace but the Victoria Carriage boots are flawless reproductions. For the 20th century, the Savoy looks believable for Edwardian shoes while the Gibson looks like an excellent choice for the early 1920s.
www.remixvintageshoes.com – have some great shoes, especially for the 1940s. Their model Frances works well for the 1930s, while virtually all their low heeled and wedge-heeled sandals are excellent for wartime 40s into the early 1950s. Their evening high heeled shoe models Ritz and Garnet could also serve for a broad period of time from the late 1930s into the mid 1950s.
