_. 12 July 15, IMS IU*»> Ciljr GI*b*-Gai«tt«, Mu*m City, U. Get Out Thai Old Fashioned 'Buttonhook! By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Fashion Editor You may take your choice next fall between spat shoes, bootees and buttoned footgear that re-> quires an old-fashipned buttonhook. > There's news in the fall shoe lineup, with new silhouettes, new colors, nsw leather combinations, new heel shapes. The shoe designers have decided it's high time they shared headlines with the dressmakers and the milliners. And this fall headlines will go to the feet. Biggest news in the fall shoe story is the higher shoe, whether buttoned, buckled or laced. Closed toes and heeis are the thing, and heels themselves take on new shapes, mostly the curved French type, in either medium or high styles. There is a soft dressmaker look to most of the newest shoes, even those designed for wear with suits. Draped vamps, fabric and leather combinations, delicate strap and filigree treatments all contribute to a ladylike effect. With ail the new styles rampant, the pump remains the favorite shoe style for fall—but it has a different last, a more pointed toe, a curved heel. Straps also are important in the fall picture, from the one-strap pump to the bootee height with 5 or 6 straps from instep to ankle. Ties ana oxfords also are back, in both tailored* and dressy styles. And prices—they're still up, in most cases a little higher than last season. V. F. W.
