The holiday season is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start shopping for gifts! But what should you buy for the vintage lover in your life?
Here at Saint Savoy, we think that the best holiday gift ideas for vintage lovers are shoes. A beautiful pair of shoes is the perfect way to complete any vintage style outfit.
Just look at all these great vintage style possibilities!
Stunning Women’s Shoes
One of the best gifts for any lady who loves vintage fashion is the RIVIERA shoe, which comes in three heights: 1.5 cm/0.59 in (RIVIERA FLAT), 3.5 cm/1.38 in (RIVIERA), and 5 cm/1.97 in (RIVIERA HIGH).
All three models are the perfect combination of enduring vintage style and contemporary comfort and support.
The classic RIVIERA’s medium heel gives elegance to any outfit and occasion. Its wide heel base and brushed leather sole even provide fantastic cushioning and support. The RIVIERA is available in a range of gorgeous colours, like Mamba, Stardust, and Sky.
We also have the RIVIERA FLAT for those who prefer to dance the night away in flats. The RIVIERA FLAT has the same elegant t-strap as the other RIVIERA models, just with no heel! These shoes are guaranteed to garner compliments for their blend of fashion and function, in colours like timeless Moviola and dazzling Garnet.
Fancy a different look? We have a wide range of vintage women’s shoes in different styles and colours, so you can find the best gift for the vintage lovers in your life.
The HIGHBALL is an ankle-high model with intricate cutouts available in phenomenal shades like In The Heart, In The Barn, and In The Dark. The cut of these shoes is adaptable to different foot shapes, including wider feet, making them one of our most comfortable and supportive pairs!
For a more sophisticated and sensual style, look no further than the WEST for that vintage lover! With supple leather, stable heels, centre straps, and decorative peepholes, these shoes are as supportive as they are alluring. Purchase the WEST in Champagne or Black for classic colours, or the WEST Red for elegant flamboyance.
Timeless Men’s and Unisex Shoes
In addition to our breathtaking women’s styles, we also offer absolutely smashing men’s and unisex vintage style shoes!
All of our men’s and unisex models have extremely cushy footbeds and terrific shock absorbance, so you can hit the streets or hit the dance floor in them.
The classic full-leather derby of the PEGASUS is extremely popular for a reason! Its detailed broguing and refined colour palettes make this model a show-stopper. Pick it up in Caviar or Cohiba to turn some heads.
If the vintage lover in your life loves Oxfords, then the COMET is the perfect holiday gift idea! The Oxford lacing gives the shoe a subtle elegance, while its uncommon colour combinations make the COMET stand out from the crowd. Try it in Aubergine or Classic.
We also have you covered for unisex models, which are available in a full range of sizes!
The ever-popular RUGCUTTER is truly versatile, with its classy Derby Toe Cap, modern and stylish colours, and innovative 3-ply TPU sole. It’s the pinnacle of style and comfort in Burgundy, Crocodile, or Ebony.
For exceptional elegance, look no further than the THE WHIP Mulled Wine! Handcrafted by a Portuguese master using Italian leather, this shoe is as high quality as it is attractive and comfortable.
Another Longwing Brogue like THE WHIP, EL DORADO Ivory is exquisite and unique. The combination of chrome-free leather with our tried-and-true synthetic Sender Sole make these shoes comfortable, springy, and lightweight.
How to Find Someone’s Shoe Size
You might think that it can be a little tricky to figure out someone else’s shoe size. But with a little preparation, you can purchase the perfect shoes in the perfect size! Here are a few tips on measuring to best determine someone’s shoe size:
- Measure their feet later in the day. Feet swell up a bit throughout the day. If you measure their feet too early in the day, then the shoes you order will be a bit tight and uncomfortable by the end of the day.
- Measure their feet when they’re wearing socks. If the gift receiver will be wearing socks with their new shoes, then you should measure their feet when they’re wearing socks. The thickness of the socks could affect the measurement, so you want to take that into account.
- Look straight down at their feet while measuring. If you measure their feet from an angle, you might not get the right size.
- Use their larger foot’s measurement. Most people’s feet are slightly different sizes. So you should measure both of their feet, but use the larger foot’s size to figure out the right shoe size.
- Go to the next half-size. If their size is on a length line, it’s best to go to the next half-size longer. That way, they have a little breathing room for their feet.
