Burlap soles

Burlap soles

Fashion Synopsis

The rough and ready got their walking papers when the coarse burlap covered the wedges of your favorite platform shoes. In the 70's, shoes were wacky and wild in a million different styles, and burlap joined the sporty looks of cork, raffia, wood and leather as natural coverings.

Burlap was the choice of bottom when placed with crafty calicos, flirty flowers, or country handkerchief prints. It was like turning your every journey into a sack race.
