The ultimate accessory to any outfit, vintage or modern, is a killer pair of just-right shoes. Royal Vintage is your curated collection of vintage reproduction and retro style footwear from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s

Top brands, plenty of choice, and a price point for every pocketbook, you'll find that elusive pair of perfect vintage heels at Royal Vintage Shoes.

Royal Vintage is the retro brainchild of Lauren Stowell, the historical shoe designer behind American Duchess, and Chris Stowell, web ninja and logistics expert. Together they've found the best vintage-inspired and historic reproduction shoes perfectly styled for the early 20th century, selecting shoes based on the hallmarks of original 1920s, 30s, and 40s footwear found in museums and private collections.

Lauren holds a degree in illustration from San Jose State University, and designs exclusively for American Duchess. She is passionate about historic dress from the 16th century through the 1960s.

Chris brings experience in corporate web design/development, systems and logistics, keeping Royal Vintage running smoothly.
