Olivia Shoes by Rocket Originals


A pair of Olivia Shoes by Rocket Originals worn with a tea dress complete a Forties' style summer outfit perfectly.

There are no shortage of retro dresses both on the high street and higher end labels, but authentic looking footwear is much harder to come by. Rocket Orignals offeres the ideal solution with their reproduction styles based on 1940s and 1950s originals. The Olivia shoes are based on a design that they think came from late 40s or early 50s - and they've published a photo of the pair that provided the inspiration. They have a two and half inch heel with a low platform sole, which along with padded insole make them comfortable enough to wear all day. The shoes are available in cherry red, black or brown leather, with each having stitching in a contrasting colour.

The shoes cost £75 a pair from Rocket Originals.
