It’s always a delight stepping into a pair of Royal Vintage Shoes! After eyeing their luxurious winter range for a while, I decided it was time to fill some gaps in my shoe collection with some instant classics. I’ve started off with the Alice oxfords in black, a pair of 1940s reproduction heels that I used as a starting point for a very Dior-inspired look. See more after the jump!
At Royal Vintage they’re known for making authentic reproduction shoes, so you know they’re going to go so well with all your vintage (or vintage inspired) gear! The Alice oxfords are based on an original 1940s design, with true-to-period detailing like the delicate lattice-style front and scalloped edging. With a sturdy 3″ heel and fully leather upper and lining, these beauties are a dream to get around in. The tie at the front is also so handy for getting that perfect fit. I’m wearing my usual 6.5US, and while they were a little tight on first wear the leather has now given (as expected) and they’re very comfy. If you have a wider foot though RV encourages you to consider sizing up half a step. I am so excited for all the outfits I can pair the Alice oxfords with, and so glad to have another pair of elegant RV heels that I can wear all day without getting sore feet!
