Python has been slithering its way back into fashion of late, both as a material for accessories [Pra-da!] and a print for apparel [Hannah MacGibbon’s swansong F/W 11 collection for Chloé, anyone?] and so we naturally turned to Stylesight’s excellent vintage library- and our recent photographic conquests at the Brimfield Antique Show– for a little inspiration.

Below, a trio of our favorite footwear, all dating back to the 1940s.

Pair no. 1: Suzies

Pair no. 2: Johansen

Pair no. 3: Arthurschalein
