Check out these catalog pages from the 50's. I totally want these Aldens shoes, at 50's prices of course - $3.98 and $4.98!! That doesn't even pay for shipping or tax these days on a good pair of shoes. I can't believe how modern the styles are. I would definitely wear these now - ok maybe not baby doll pink or Easter egg blue sandals, but I'd wear most of them!! From here.
