The very first booth that caught my eye at Project was the booth showcasing Walk-Over and Vintage Shoe Company. The combination of smart looking shoes and pops of color drew me into the booth. I suppose after over 250 years of making shoes, they know how to draw a customer in.
Walk-Over is the original maker of Buck shoes and Saddle shoes and it’s been around since 1758 making it the oldest brand in America. All of the shoes are hand-made in Pennsylvania and spring-summer 2013 marks the relaunch of their women’s collection. The spring-summer Walk-Over women’s collection features Buck and Saddle shoes with pops of accent colors. My favorites were the shoes with different colored soles – I love the element of surprise. You can find Walk-Over at Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th Avenue, Zappos.com and WalkOver.com.
Vintage Shoe Company
Lining the walls adjacent was the spring-summer Vintage Shoe Company collection. Though not as old as Walk-Over, you can’t argue about heritage at a brand started in the 1800s. The premise of Vintage Shoe Company’s relaunch is to take archival styles and modernize them. Maybe that’s why I loved these shoes. In some ways they looked familiar, like old friends, yet there was something very new about the sorbet rainbow I saw before me. I took snapshots of my favorite styles and I could see these worn all through spring and summer with dresses, pants, shorts – pretty much anything. You can find Vintage Shoe Company shoes at select boutiques like Shoe Biz in SF, American Rag in LA and Tani in NY.
