Mary Jane pump shoe

The most remarkable thing about women’s shoe history in the 1920s was that they were visible! With dresses getting shorter and ankles now exposed, shoes entered the spotlight. Now shoes were seen and admired, and matched to not only the style of the garment but also to the season too. This caused clothing designers to make new clothes with shoes in mind and often they became shoe designers as well.

The Mary Jane pump, with one or several straps or a ‘T’ bar, an almond shaped toe and modest 5cm “Louis” heel were the most popular shoes of the twenties.
