    The brand "I love billy" does a decent job and recreating this style. Not perfect, I don't think they angle the heel right, but they have the round toe and the curve in the heel (in some not all of their styles)

    I prefer the lower heeled things that tied, "gillies" (?) is what I think I'm referring to (not those name-brand things). Even those 30s oxford things that tie look less clunky than the saddle shoes we wore ages ago. I hate clunky heeled shoes. God knows I can't do much of a high heel anymore but I do like something a bit feminine. I actually saw a very pretty higher heeled thing in a thrift store that looked new - I figure it must have hurt like hell for her to give them to a thrift store, because I'm sure she paid a bit for those. I actually wear the old lady Easy Spirit Motion style tie shoes that I found in several colors, all but brand new in a thrift store, lol. You can walk anywhere in those babies. I'm big on walking.

    B.A.I.T Footwear is a brand that makes reproductions of shoe designs from 1930 to modern. they dont have many strictly 1930's options but a lot of their 40's shoe designs have the curvy shape from the 30's.

    All of my shoes look like they are from the 30s to the 50s. I hate the look of high heels especially because most people buy larger sizes and then stick their feet to the shoes. Nothing is more disgusting than seeing a 1/2 inch space between the heel and the shoe. Who are they trying to impress? Most of my heels are dance shoes with a regular sole.

    Thank you for saying what you did about shoe silhouette. It set off a lightbulb in my head, and answered a question I've been trying to for myself for a very long time now: why/ what is it about modern clothes (1985-1995 and beyond) that makes it so much more difficult to figure out what a modern outfit is...vs say, 1780, or 1455?
    Silhouette I think is the answer.
    Not that I think it's a bad thing at all, that fashion is more free and people can wear things from whatever decade they want or even whatever century they want....
    Just the lack of it explains why it's so hard to differentiate some things from 2010 to 2020, whereas the difference between 1950 and 1960, or 1450 and 1460 would be much more clear.

    Yes! this is exactly the perfect era for shoes! I think I have the opposite issue to you...I have tiny feet so I'm not looking to make my feet look smaller, but they're just that magic style that also looks beautiful on small feet as well. Contrast that to those awful witch-toe points from the early 2000s, which were supposed to elongate your legs (according to What Not To Wear at the time anyway lol) but just made you look awful.

I'm just furious nobody cares about the details, and that I can't buy online because of my narrow feet xD
