Spade Sole Shoes – A. S. Beck

What an amazing pair of shoes. My friend directed me to them in a London vintage shop, for the princely sum of £20. These A. S. Beck shoes are made in dark blue suede and feature this amazing “spade” sole, one of the prominent obsessions of collectors of vintage American shoes. I’m not entirely sure of the date, but I’m sure the shoe enthusiasts can tell me. I would guess them as being 1930s? A. S. Beck seems to have a pretty big shoe retailer/maker, if the pictures online of their stores back in the day are anything to go by.
