Pre-Order Open - New Royal Vintage F/W Shoes are Here!

When the weather turns cold, snowy, and wet, what's a vintage girl to do? We know you're all enjoying the Summer Haze right now, but *Winter Is Coming* ;-). When it does, there's no need to sacrifice your vintage style. This season, we've got you covered.

Meet the New Yorkers - practical, stylish, and comfortable shoes made from original 1930s and 40s designs.

Pre-Order is currently open in the USA at

Last Autumn, Abby and I visited New York for the first time and were introduced to the wonderful vintage community there. Throughout our stay we observed a totally different way of life than we have out here on the West Coast - one of lots of walking city streets, standing in subways, and needing shoes that are sturdy, practical, but also stylish. The idea for a collection of Fall and Winter shoes to fill this need was born.

Claire Oxfords

Luckily for us, we had an original early 1940s "Academy Girl" oxford in our study archive, which served as the model for our new Claire oxfords. Offered in the standard "regulation" colors found in 1940s catalogs and advertisements (white, black, and brown), the Claires blend a common sense heel with fashionable perforated uppers just like the originals.

Whether you're portraying a servicewoman or civilian or you just need a great pair of long-distance vintage-style shoes, Claires are an excellent choice for the season.

Susie Saddle Shoes

Susie Saddle Shoes by Royal Vintage - real leather, real rubber soles, really comfortable.
It's hard to ignore the classic saddle shoe in the first half of the 20th century. Popular for a good 50 years, saddle shoes changed very little during this time.

Royal Vintage Susie Saddle Shoes in blue and white leather with orange rubber soles.
Our Susies are patterned from an original Spalding saddle shoe in our archive and are specifically designed for women: they are lightweight with a tapered, low-profile toe, and feature an all-in-one molded rubber sole just like the original. We're starting with three classic color combos - black/white, blue/white, and brown/white - in real leather inside and out.

Eve Art Deco Sandals

Eve Art Deco Sandals with keyhole design, t-strap, and caged toe. In stunning rose gold metallic leather. Also available in black.
Style and practicality should also extend to the evening, when our friends in New York are wanting a bit of shimmer, shine, and glamour for their after-dark events.

Royal Vintage "Eve" 1930s sandals in black leather.
The Eve sandals offer a classic keyhole design in a caged sandal combined with the security of a t-strap and the 2 3/8" Spanish heel for comfort without frumpiness.  Offered in classic black leather or our new and *stunning* rose gold metallic leather, Eves are everything you want in an Old Hollywood Golden Age evening shoe.

Rosie Boots

Royal Vintage "Rosie WWII Double-Buckle Boots for women. These are everything you want and need them to be.
Perhaps one of the greatest challenges for women in the vintage community is that of winter boots. With so few practical, durable, and authentic options out there, we saw a great need for something comfy and kick-ass. It was "meant to be" when a reader sent us an original double-buckle boot from the 1940s, which we have recreated faithfully and tested thoroughly with excellent results. The Rosie Boots are your go-to's. Wear them for reenacting World War II events or on their own.

Wear the Rosie Boots for reenactment or regular dress - modern or vintage!

We hope you like this year's Fall/Winter collection. Our goal is to keep you stylishly on your feet in durable, practical, and beautiful shoes that will serve you for years.

  1. I adore those white lace ups, they're sooooo beautiful! The only problem is I know they won't suit me. Lace ups that finish tighter around the bottom of the ankle look awful on me, even my Dad agrees and he knows nothing about fashion! I really struggle to find ones more like the early 30s style where they were shorter in the vamp area. It would be great if you did some lace ups like that, I'd buy them in every colour! :) xx
