Let's Shop for Shoes in the 1940s

Have you heard? Sky-high heels are so over. One- and two-inch heels are fresh for spring.

And here, in these pages from the 1940s, you've got lots of options. On the left, the 1943 Lane Bryant catalog offers cute striped wedges, but remember, ladies: They are NOT rationed. On the right, "youthful" pumps and sandals by Kerrybrooke, the house brand of Sears, Roebuck & Company. (Remember their cute short-sleeved sweaters?)

So, which pair do you have your eyes on?
