The T-Bar is back! Create your perfect t-strap shoes to add a little vintage flair to your wardrobe. The classic t-bar and mary-jane shoe, which originated at the turn of the 20th century, was also made popular by fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn, and the mary jane style by Manolo Blahnik was even toted by Carrie Bradshaw “an urban shoe myth”. This vintage feminine style can be updated for modern wear by adding details like a pointed toe, a contrast color for the strap, and using patent leather and suede. Design your own t-strap shoes with our shoe builder, or see our favorites below:
The classic pump shape with pointed toe is very big this fall, and is extremely versatile for day or night wear. Try our favorite for Fall 2013, Dark & Stormy, a pointed toe show featuring Charcoal Grey tweed, a Black patent leather t-strap and 4″ heel.
Platform heels will never go out of style, and as the cooler weather approaches, you can also wear tights with your t-strap shoes. Pair black tights with a colorful shoe with contrast strap and heel, like True Blue, shown here in Navy suede & Bronze metallic leather with a 4″ heel and .5″ inside platform.
