I found this ad for shoes in a 1950 Seventeen magazine I got a while back and I was obsessed with them and have been searching for the at least a shoe similar so that I could put holes in and shoelaces. I love that they can be tied in so many ways.
I saw this picture of another Kedette ad on Casey's Elegant Musings It's the same shoe as above and I just love the pink color!
They make think of Toms shoes actually. It wouldn't be hard to add the grommets (is that the right word?) and lacing. In fact, they already have a shoe that has the grommets in it (except for at the front), the lacing would just have to be changed!
