cheap vintage 1940s 1950s winter snow and spring boots under $50

I've been wearing my vintage snow boots all winter and now that spring is almost here, I'm excited to get into my wedges and pumps again. Although I'm an open-toe shoe kind of girl, there are still some occasions that call for a fab pair (or two...or three) of vintage style boots.

 I am so excited to start my garden again, play in the rain with my little puddle ducks, go camping and romping through the meadow at my mom's house in the country.

Here's a collection of vintage inspired kicks for your muddy play days. Wear them with your overalls or pair them with a vintage dress for morning trips to the farmer's market and afternoon picnics by the river. When looking at all of these vintage boot ads, I was surprised at how some of these styles have only changed slightly through the decades! The original ads range from the 1930s to 1960s. The modern counterparts are all under $50- available from Tidestore

A staple shoe for many vintage girls is the oxford heel. This great shoe suits many eras and doesn't look out of place with modern fashions either. I love a durable, low-heeled oxford like this. Replace the utilitarian laces with ribbon to dress them up.

 A basic cowgirl boot has been in fashion for ages. Women wore them on the ranch, to the market, in the garden and they soon became a part of daily fashion. This modern boot has a pretty scalloped cut-out edge with a stacked heel.  See them in light brown and black

Although winter is ending, most vintage loving ladies are always on the hunt for the perfect fur-trimmed boot for snowy days. I often wear mine in the early spring and fall too. Here's a very affordable high-heeled boot trimmed in faux fur. Although the shape and heel style isn't exactly like the original Gaytees, it's pretty darn close and a great buy at $36.99

  1. Oh my goodness, I'm so tickled to see those knee-high 1940s boots! And here I was thinking about donating my knee-high boots because they might not be authentic-looking. Thank you for saving my losing two lovely pair of knee-high boots that are going to come quite in handy as winter shall not be over with here for three or so months yet.

    Those fur-lined ones are darling...I do wish they had a lower heel (me, of all people, saying that...). A four-inch heel is not too useful on ice. Darn! Still darling, though. Great finds, you did such a good job of matching up the vintage ones to modern counterparts.

    1. I know! I feel the same wat about the heel. All of my snow boots are flats! They'd be awesome in the fall though

  2. Wonderful selection! Seeing this stylish roundup reminds me of the fact that I haven't had a pair of true rain boots (as opposed to snow boots) since I was a little girl. I'd love to change that this spring.

  3. Wow, look at those Gaytees knee highs, how interesting! Spring and fall are two seasons I just can't figure out WHAT to do footwear-wise. I have a couple of suede vintage closed-toe shoes but they're never really weather-appropriate in the mucky Midwest. I want in my sandals already! lol
