The description at Overstock.com says that these heels are “a new spin on the saddle style”. But retro and vintage shoe lovers know they’re more than that: they’re a mix of the 20s, the 30s and the 50s all at once.
The t-strap mary jane style is the “20s” part of this heel. It was the shoe style back then and along with the flapper dress, is one of the best articles of clothing to represent the roaring 20s.
The “30s” can be seen in the spectator/reverse wingtip design on the toes. Both spectator shoes and these Diesel heels have the perforated leather design and in addition, these heels also have the two-tone look commonly seen on wingtip shoes.
Which brings us to the “50s” part of this heel. The 50s saw a lot of two-tone coloring on women’s shoes and these Diesel heels come in more than just one contrasting color. In fact, there are 4:
Clockwise from top left: the Diesel Neveau T-strap Heels in White/Dark Plum/Rose Dust; in Black/White/Glacier; in Alpine/Taupe; and in Earth/Coach/Taupe
Which color do you like best?
These originally $125.00 heels are currently on sale. If you like the Earth color the most, Overstock.com has the best price on them at just $79.49.
I always thought Diesel was more of a running/outdoor shoe type company. Who knew they made really good-looking retro and vintage shoes as well?
