Comments Off on Bow Shoes, Here To Stay

The bow shoe goes as far back as you care to look being both a functional and decorative addition to fashion footwear, adding that aesthetic to the knot or other fasteners. More commonly today its use is primarily decorative.
The bow as a shoe fastener and decoration was eventually usurped by the buckle as the fastener of choice adorning the footwear of both gentlemen and ladies. The decorative bow has survived, adding that ‘cute’ factor predominantly to women’s footwear whether or not a fastener is utilised in conjunction.
Today’s bow shoe design is popular on peep toe shoes and ballerina flats, the bow now generally accepted as depicting a feminine style despite its non gender specific heritage – documented from as far back as the 1860’s when it was also the preserve of the well turned out gentry.
