We are just swooning over the Great Gatsby movie here. The glamour, the glitz, the fashion! Check out our favorite Great Gatsby inspired vintage style pumps in larger sizes.
When it comes to vintage shoe shopping, we ladies with big feet get a bum rap, and no mistake. The simple truth is that the growth in women’s shoe sizes has really only exploded in the last 50 years. Size 10 feet were virtually unheard of in the bad old days when the average shoe size was a size 5, and if you had large feet you kept quiet about them as you slunk around in mens loafers. As irritating as it is now not to be able to find THAT pair of shoes, the loves of your life, those pumps in larger sizes. Sometime I like to spare a thought for our sisters with big feet especially at the turn of the century and the onset of the jazz age when previously floor length hemlines rose up and there was no longer anywhere to hide big feet!
In celebration of the greater freedom of choice we now have in our choice of shoes, and in celebration of all things jazz age, let’s take a walk down memory lane in these super fabulous Great Gatsby inspired vintage style pumps in larger sizes. Women blessed with additional inches in the foot department can now rock vintage style, in the coolest contemporary way, thanks to our favorite large large shoe store. Get ready to take on your jazz age alter-ego ladies!
