This shoe with it's exotic three dimensional dragon’s heads in multicoloured appliquéd leather. They were made by British shoe designer Thea Cadabra in 1984 and would turn any wearer into a dragoness.
Tall, thick leather boots like this pair were worn by Postillions who were the coachmen that rode on the horses as guides from the 17th through the 19th centuries throughout Western Europe. The boots were considered part of the saddle equipment and protected the men’s legs from horses and low-lying branches.
As you can see these grey and yellow shoes with red taillights have been influenced heavily by the design aesthetic prevalent in the American automotive industry in the 1950s. The possibilities with these shoes are endless and they would look great with a vintage dress.
Halloween is for kids of all ages but most commonly, the under-twelve set get all the good candy! This pair of children’s sneakers from 1982 would have been a fun and sensible addition to an Incredible Hulk costume.
We hope that these choices give you the inspiration to create the perfect Halloween costume this year - from your feet up!
