London Life - Fashion pages by Jean Shrimpton, 1965
Spread from the short-lived but impossibly cool magazine, London Life, with a column by sixties supermodel Jean Shrimpton who regularly wrote about the clothes she liked. This week, for the first issue, shoes including some Gucci two tone pumps (top right) and some Scholl sandals drawn by Barney Wan. Seems Jean has just had to do a bit of shopping and not much writing!

Advert for London Shoe Company 1898
A selection of victorian boots, real whale skin for shooting, lady's field boot made from tan or blacking calf, button or lace, smart toe brogues. An interesting advert for Victorian branding for cycling shoes, this was solely by the 'London Shoe Company' under the directions of George Lacy Hillier an English racing cyclist, and an excellent all-around athlete. Barring a stamp on the sole of the shoe with the words 'The Lacy Hillier Shoe' they promoted a thin steel plate that was fixed between the inner and outer sole, rendering the fore part of the sole perfectly rigid, whilst the waist was made as light and pliable as possible.
