The style of our shoes come Not (only) of the imagination of the creators. The Spartans to the UGG, we investigated the origins of our favorite shoes.
Before we begin our historical inventory, take into account some considerations not less important. Until 1830, there was shoe left or right shoe. It’s a french Shoemaker (well yes!) who has noticed that our feet were different from the other, and required forms of shoes adapted. Another fun fact: regulations on the height of the heels were introduced in 1910 to make sure decency of the feminine dress style. More than 8 cm heels and holding was considered “risky”. No comments…
Let’s start with the Spartans. We could go back even further in time and start with the first Egyptian papyrus canvas but Sandals socks are really the first shoes to be permanently entered the history of fashion. And for good reason, the Spartans continue to tread the catwalk today, not to mention celebrities like Kate Moss and Sienna Miller making it their favorite summer shoes. We bet that’s exactly what had imagined the Romans when they draw these shoes intended for military use.
The medieval tips
So it is here that Miuccia Prada draws inspiration. In medieval Europe, the length of the feet was tied to the social prestige, so the hunters were trying to create with the longest tip shoes, also known as the “Dragon” at this time. Today, sharp shoes remain trend in proportions, certainly more reasonable than in the 15th century.
Chic shoes of the 18th century
In the 1700s, rich women didn’t go out a lot. Suddenly, the boudoir mules were often made of silk and delicate embroidery, with a leather case in case they wanted to venture outside. Manolo Blahnik has also recreated the shoe collection of Marie Antoinette, the ultimate trend-setter of the 18th century, for the eponymous film by Sofia Coppola in 2006
In reality, the rain boots have their origins in the Wellington boots, the name of the English Duke, who in 1817 marketed the first rubber of this style shoes.But these are actually stars like Kate Moss who made one-piece trend with including the Hunter brand which since the madness of festivals Glastonbury and company, sells its famous “wellies” as from trimmed rolls.
It’s Salvatore Ferragamo who invented the heels in Liège, in 1938, after that the fascist regime had devastated the country of any piece of usable leather. This style of shoes has been around the world and is now part of the choice of celebrities, Kim Kardashian Kate Middleton.
In 1953, Gucci invents the term of “moccasins” whose iconic style crossed the decades until model poked the 2015 fall-winter. Audrey Hepburn is also part of the history of moccasins, as evidenced by its role in funny face in 1957.
In the 1950s, the pumps have been popularized and named after the name of a Sicilian combat knife, the Stiletto. Style Roger Vivier was strict at the time and perfectly complemented the New Look silhouette designed by Christian Dior, a style that marked the Decade.
Until 1978, the UGG were reserved for the Australian surfers who wanted to keep their feet warm when they came out of the water. Then the brand began to be exported, sales have exploded to a point of no return at the beginning of the 200 years when all the Hollywood stars began to wear between two shootings or on vacation.
Although sales of athletic shoes have increased since the 1950s is really with stars like Jane Fonda and the mode of aerobics in the 80s tennis went to fashion. More their popularity grew, more celebrities adopted and more iconic models of some brands were revisited, again and again. New Balance, Stan Smith, Nike or Reebok Classics: “Sneakers” what tribe are you?
