With the rise in hemlines there was also a rise in shoe sales. Dresses of the previous era made it nearly impossible to see what shoes a girl was wearing. However, now that shorter dresses were in style, shoes were in high demand. The fact that shoes could now be mass manufactured helped meet women's need for shoes.
T bar shoes were the style preferred by women at the time. The name of these shoes comes from the T shaped strap that runs along the top of the wearers foot. These stylish shoes were no lower than 2 inches. They were usually closed toe, but were just as fashionable in the peep toe style. Usually T bar shoes were embellished with some sort of bow or buckle. Wedged heels were another part in the shoes design.
