There are some shoes that are the boiled-down essence of their particular look. That have become synonymous over the years with a whole variety of lifestyles.
You have your anti-establishment Doc Marten 1460′s (introduced in 1960).
Your once-athletic and now indie/alternative Converse All Stars (introduced in 1917).
There’s your ultimate in uptown ladylike chic, Repetto BB flats (introduced in 1956 and named for their intended client: Brigitte Bardot).
And your life-of-leisure Gommino driving moc by Tods (introduced in the 1970s).
See… a shoe can evoke an entire lifestyle.
