Twenties and Thirties • Seaside Sandals

• Holiday Footwear
Vintage Sandals Inexpensive footwear for wearing on holiday on the beach or in sunny weather.
These shoes appear to be made without a "last" which is the wooden mould used to shape a shoe.
The upper and sole seem to be joined by "blanket stitch" in a thick contrasting thread
The pair on the left seem to have no heel; I am unsure about those on the right.

  • I would imagine these sandals would be a holiday purchase,bought for the holiday or at the seaside. •
