Two of a Kind or Mother and Daughter Shoes

Welcome to another Sunday Shoe Spectacle! Today's post features two pairs of very similar shoes in my personal collection. I've had both pairs for a few years now. You may remember the pair with the bows from this post when I wore them with my Sew For Victory dress. I don't wear them all that often as I have a hard time keeping sling backs on my feet. They other pair are far too tiny for my feet! But they are a great example of a pair of stylish shoes for a young teen.

To give you an idea of the size difference the pair on the right with the bows are about a US 6 1/2. But they look huge in comparison! They are marked "Air Step, Magic Sole." The tiny pair are marked "Magic Stride by Gregory & Read." It is rather magical that these shoes are so similar, don't you think? (If anyone has tiny feet, they are listed for sale in my Etsy shop.)

It's a shame this pair doesn't fit me! But that's OK, they look nice on the shelf in my sewing room. :)


  1. That really is a pronounced size difference. Wow! Both are gorgeous and they make a great looking team in these shots (and I'm sure, in real life).

    You're not alone on the slingback front. They don't always stay on my feet very well either.

  2. Those shoes are just lovely. I have small feet, but my feet are not as small as that one pair. I have never worn a pair slingbacks, but I know I can have trouble keeping my feet in any shoe without a strap. I am really hoping that the pair of 1940's pumps I ordered off of Etsy are a tight enough fit that I don't feel like I am losing my shoes and yet not too small!

    I love the eagle print fabric. Is it a new or vintage fabric?
