Vintage Clip Art- Vintage Shoe Woes

I seem to be on a fashion and beauty kick this week. Here is a page from a personal hygiene and home nursing book. I like how not only the French heel causes foot distortions, backaches, and headaches, but "nervousness" too. Well if my feet became disfigured due to my shoes, I would be "nervous" too.

We have plenty of "woes" in non-vintage shoes too! I am starting a card with shoes and this is a great picture. Thanks!

I hated pointed toe shoes. Now I see I had the right idea. Besides this style shoe always made me think of witch costumes at Halloween. LOL!

when I was a child in the 1950's and 60's and was taken to buy new shoes we had to put our feet in a machine which took xray type images to see if the shoes fit and this just reminds me of those times - how old that makes me feel!

It really puts it in perspective of being in pain for looking good. Its like those tight wasted bodices etc. Thanks for sharing. It was interesting to see the xray image up close
