What is vintage footwear?

They refer to footwear styles that were worn decades ago. In early civilizations, sandals were the most common footwear; however, a few early cultures had more substantial footgear. As late as the 1850s, most shoes were constructed on straight lasts, which meant that the right and the left pair were pretty much the same. Lasts are foot-shaped forms on which footwear was constructed and repaired. Most men’s vintage-style shoes are inspired by designs made popular between the 40s and 70s. While classy footwear has the original design, retro-style recreates the original design that has already existed. 

You might have seen this pair on the red carpet, fashion runways, and streets. Many alternative lovers enjoy wearing retro footwear, and they are an easy way of adding a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Manufacturers across the globe are becoming more creative and coming up with footwear in different colors, designs, and patterns, from sneakers to dress shoes and alternative boots. The options are now endless, and you can find an ideal gear that suits your style. 

What you need to know before purchasing vintage shoes

If you are wondering how to buy a sturdy pair, here are a few factors to consider. Some people talk about their quality and comfort level, while others say the style does it. With a huge fan base growing by the day, you need to know what to go for and what to add to your antique collection:

Quality- Buying a genuine leather pair requires thoughtful consideration and a keen eye for recognizing the quality of leather. Vintage handmade footwear is made of fine leather and is resistant. Shop for high-quality leather that will not split or crack in the long run.

Timelessness- You can never go wrong with a classic pair of custom old-style leather shoes. They are made from naturally sourced materials like suede, genuine, and patent leather. A good pair can also withstand wear and tear, making it ageless and still wearable with time.

Money saver- If you are going to shop for high-quality footgear, you are not only choosing the best pair, but you are also saving money as it will last you a lifetime. A custom pair of men’s vintage dress shoes is durable and has a timeless style.

Detailed finish- Retro footgear is designed with professional craftsmanship. They use the best leather quality to give you the best results. The boots have perfect stitches with well-laid soles that are better compared to machine-made footwear.

Comfort- Nothing beats the level of comfort of custom footwear because they are perfect in size. Some are sturdy, while others are flexible, making them a worthy choice.

How to take care of your vintage footwear

Old-style footgear has components like rubber, glue, and leather that age differently than most garments do. Rubber can crumble, glue can lose adhesiveness, and leather can become dry and brittle. It is crucial to keep these in mind as you wear and take care of your shoes.

Keep them safe- Avoid throwing your vintage footwear in big bins with other shoes where they could get crushed or damaged. It is advisable to store them in racks where they won’t be squashed.

Be careful when cleaning- Be careful with the products you use as you clean your footwear. For leather and suede, use specialty leather cleaning products that won’t discolor or damage the pair. Most footwear can be wiped clean unless they are canvas or another porous material.

Keep them fresh- Shoes get odors, especially if you wear them without socks or tights. It is advisable to leave them to dry after wearing them to avoid the moisture turning into an odor.
