World War II

World War II

During World War II, women's shoes were chunky, practical, but also stylish. With rationing restrictions, women's World War II shoes were limited in materials, heel heights, and decoration. Shoemakers got creative with material substitutes and decoration, using cork, cardboard, stitching, cutouts, elastics, and other more available components to maintain beautiful silhouettes while supporting the war effort.
