Phone 3-0561 "NEW LOW PRICES" Spike Heel Returns This Spring to Slim Her Foot The heel may be low, but the fashion Is high. This year there Is more excitement in heels than in any other one feature of shoe de sign. "From wafer to stiletto to tower" Is the way one enthusiastic designer describes the new heel for spring. Women will walk again on slender spikes of Spanish type, which makes the foot look slimmer, smaller, more alluring. At the oth er extreme they will walk in infinite comfort on the pancake heel which is a new feature of flats. In between there is the widest choice of fascinating new designs for the shoe that used to be the dullest member of a woman's wardrobe— the sensible walking shoe. It's still sensible, easy to walk in but it manages to look as smart as the most frivolous dress shoe. And it's the new heels that make the difference. The old built-up leather heel on stolid lines have given place, first to the baby French, and then a whole succession of new designs which give a fillip. There's the keg heel, the spool heel, the heel in tiers, the rainbow heel, which is made up of layers of contrasting leathers. There are square heels, and rounded heels which follow the curve of the back of the shoe to a narrow tapered point. Just to emphasize the importance of' the heel, in many instances it is done in contrasting leathers or colors or both. The patent leather heel is a feature with suedes and calfskins in spring shoes, and with white, pastel or bright linens or shantungs in re sort and summer shoes. •A pale blue shoe may sport a navy heel, or a pale pink shoe, one of bright red kidskin, with per haps a touch of piping to match. Red heels on black mesh shoes look wicked, and jeweled heels are eye-catchers on the dance floor.

This will tend to increase the efficiency and lessen the fatigue of the average in dividual. In standing or walking the feet should point straight ahead of the body and be parallel to each other or slightly toed in. TEEN-AGE PROBLEM According to the National Shoe Institute, the teen-age girl is the most difficult customer a shoe salesman has, because she wants to wear adult shoes although her feet are still In the formative stage. ^PPnp|Pnwnw^^"! THE BARE LOOK IS EMPHASIZED among The New in Shoes for this spring as shown above. Tiny straps, appliqued with contrasting kid petals, stemming from the high rising "T" strap which ends in a slender strap around the ankle, gives the pair pictured an air of its own. Gay and Giddy Pumps Are Perfect With Prints If you love pretty shoes, get on your toes. Prints are back in fashion, and the shoes to go with them are wide open pumps and sandals in the most exciting colors we have seen in years. Prints for resort and summer and to wear under silk coats for spring, make much of pale backgrounds with distinctive one, two or three color patterns in subtle or vivid shades. The ground of the print may be off-white, banana or bamboo color, pale grey or muted pastels. One of the smart tricks is to pick up the predominating color in the design in a nakedhigh-heeled sandal of kidskin or suede. Pale or deeper yellow greens are new looking in these print patterns and there are leathers that exactly match them. Violet on pale grey is another favorite combination with a matching banded sandal in gleaming violet kidskin. Two new accessory colors that show up in these shoes for prints and pastels are butter cup yellow and brilliant exciting coral red. Even more colorful are the shoes that combine one, two and three colors, especially if the dress or suit be a monotone print in the popular muted greys, blues and beiges. This new red handsomely combines eggshell and royal blue in one strip pump. Eggshell and palest ice-green make the freshest and coolest of combinations. Lilac, mauve and deep violet are a stunning triad. Palmgreen, mauve and bright red are exotic. There is literally no end to the possibilities in this new trend of fashion— in shoes you buy for fun and that may easily be the highlight of your spring-in-to-summer costume. They're a practical fashion too for they go perfectly with the white, natural and pastel clothes for later on. When buying shoes— keep in mind what they will be worn with, when and where they will be worn. SEE "THE fit IT in vi. w — for SPRING '53.

It's even started a vogue in leathers— suedes, calf and kidskin dyed in pale straw tints. A smooth leather called Panama, in that shade, is quite a sensation. Straw may be only a touch of braiding on a vamp or outlining the throat cf a shoe. It may be a whole shoe, or cleverly combined with suede, smooth leathers, linen, shantung or mesh. Some of the smartest casual shoes have very high triple spool wedges made of raffia or other straw weaves, with bands of the straw to hold the shoe in place or serve as decoration o\\ a high throated vamp of fabric or leather, Natural Shade Popular Because of the rage for beige and natural tones in spring and summer costumes, the natural straw is most in demand— particularly effective when combined with white. Strong reds, blues and yellows are very smart in the rugged raffia, weaves in shoes for casual wear'or with separates for informal warm weather cocktail and dinner wear. Clusters of gay little straw flowers appear on white or pale linen shoes or on natural straw cloth, Very pretty too on black, white or navy mesh to wear with the wonderful new embossed dark cotton party dresses. One of the most spectacular of the new straw shoes is a very high-heeled pump, cut low in the vamp, of white straw cloth embroidered with jewel-eyed flying birds in black or navy. It's very high style —and the kind of shoe that makes a costume. At the other extreme, but equally smart is the casual shoe on a high cork wedee sole. The upper part* of the shoe con-sists of five strips of vivid multicolor straw across the vamp, and twisted around the ankle. A patio shoe fashion to catch ^nd hold the eye! Crisp Fresh Look Straw linings in white, natural. pastels, stripes or woven checks give a crisp fresh look to many of me nuae sanaais m white, beige or pale colors. Incidentally some of the most spectacular fabrics of the season are handwoven cottons and wool- patterned with- straw which are being made in Italy and will shortly appear in shoes in this country. The straw appears in smart re lief designs such as white scrolls on black, bright or neutral back grounds, and in hairlines and dashes which give the effect of reflections in water. Very new, very different, shortly to appear in late spring and summer shoe fashions.
