My love for antique and vintage shoes began a few years ago when I bought 50+ pairs that came from the basement of McLean’s Shoes when they closed their doors.

Most of the shoes were from the 1890′s to 1940, and most were still unworn.

I was captured by their new-shoe scent, stacked wooden heels, real leather soles & hand-sewn stitches.

Captured by the beauty of these pieces of art…

I still enjoy the thrill of finding & shooting a new pair of old shoes.
