Vintage Shoes Can Be Comfortable. Really.

Don't let anyone tell you vintage shoes can't be comfortable and wearable. Well, pointy toe stilettos excepted. Those aren't comfortable if they are 1950s, 1990s or 2010s. You just have to hunt a bit. And these 4 pair are proof. Our Test Team tried them all on and pronounced them surprisingly comfy. Our Test Team regretted they are sized 8 1/2 to 9 as said Team member wears an 8.
Myself, I'd wear these with pants and great socks. Or maybe knee socks/leggings/heavy tights and a skirt if I wasn't on the far/wrong/happy to be here/ side of 40. Make that 50. Knee socks and skirts just don't fly any more for me. But they can for you.

It's a crime that those bar strap ones are not a size 6. I, of course, wear a six....
