Back in November, I found a pair of never-been-worn Fred Braun shoes. The olive color and kitten heel was such a cute combination, I couldn’t pass them up. It’s now August of the following year. I have yet to even attempt to wear them, and they fit me perfectly!
The post I wrote on Fred Braun received so many comments! Clearly, I had unknowingly stumbled upon a true Urban Shoe Myth. Fred Braun was a New York based shoe designer during the 1960s & 1970s. He had several boutiques throughout Manhattan, including: the Village, Lexington Avenue near 50th Street, and 34th Street. As the shoes became more in demand, they were carried in independent retailers throughout Brooklyn.
