Marilyn Monroe once famously said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world”. So much more than simple sole protectors, shoes have turned into collectible objects of obsession and desire through decades of style icons who have opted to dress from the feet up. Throughout history, the sartorially savvy have championed the maxim that the power of a good pair of shoes should not be underestimated. The cult-like following of footwear brands like Christian Louboutin also proves the point. Below we’ve summed up some of our favourite pieces of footwear that have made it to the books.

1)    Audrey Hepburn’s Funny Face ballet flats

2)    Christian Louboutin’s 2012 interpretation of the Cinderella glass slipper

3)    Naomi Campbell's notoriously high 1993 Vivienne Westwood platform heels

4)    Jane Birkin’s black Mary-Janes

5)    Coco Chanel’s 1957 black and beige slingbacks

6)    Cher’s rainbow stone-embellished platform sandals

OfV says: Walk a little taller than the rest of the pack in a unique pair of vintage shoes or pre-owned designer shoes. From understated flats to head-turning stiletto heels, the Open for Vintage edit of women’s designer shoes boasts cult status styles from the most prominent designers and rare vintage pieces of footwear art alike. Do power dressing differently in a pair of office-friendly 1980s pop colour pumps; go ladylike (Audrey Hepburn-style) in Salvatore Ferragamo’s cult Varina ballerina pumps; or indulge in Christian Louboutin’s long-running repertoire of stiletto party heels (the peep toe styles being especially suited for Summer). After your special pair of vintage wedding shoes? Vogue says is no longer a prerequisite – channel Carrie in a pair of (blue?!) Manolo Blahnik’s – kitten heels would add a modern accent and offer comfort and ease well into the night. In for some rare designer kicks from the archives? Check in regularly for collectible past-season styles where classic meets contemporary (or contemporary meets the obscure) from Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo and Azzedine Alaia. Whether you’re after a pair to wear or to merely watch and admire, let the Open for Vintage edit of women’s vintage shoes and pre-owned designer shoes extend your footwear line-up.

At Open for Vintage, we consider everyone as a collector with a desire to possess beautiful things with a story worth living on. Our curated edit of unique and contemporary vintage and pre-owned fashion pieces are hand-picked for their individuality, relevance, and of course, style appeal.
