The History of the Chanel Slingbacks:
There’s more to Chanel’s two-tone slingbacks than meets the eye; the nude upper section lengthens the leg, while the black toe shortens the foot. They were first designed by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in 1957. They were resurrected by former Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld for Autumn/Winter 2015, and they quickly gained popularity. Men’s shoes from the 1950s served as its original inspiration, and today they are a representation of femininity. The timeless pumps are still a fashion-girl favorite today because of their elegant shape and understated color. This is a shoe you can be comfortable in while looking elegant and chic, isn’t that the dream?
These are some of the most classic shoes ever crafted, you would be wearing it all your life!
