Although it has been 60 years since these shoes saw the light of day, their popularity continues.
Chanel Two-Tone Shoe (original name of these legendary shoes), testify to the fact that the right things are never out of fashion, even though we live in a world where trends are changing at lightning speed. They are still one of the hottest and most popular models of shoes.
Coco Chanel has created these shoes in 1957, inspired by the classic two-tone men’s shoes. Since, she was a pioneer when introducing men’s trousers, jackets, tweed suits and little black dresses in women’s wardrobes, Coco wanted to afford to women shoes that will be comfortable, and that will flatter to each leg and make it more attractive.
Exactly two tone shoes with dark front top, visually lengthen women’s legs. Beige lengthens calf and black shortens woman’s foot. As the ladies once longed to have a small foot, because it was a symbol of femininity, visionary Chanel, found the ingenious solution.
Simple in design, color and style were born famous two-tone Chanel stilettos, which now come in multi colorful varieties, but global trendsetters insist on the eternal classic, which is basically white or gray with a black tip.
Today Karl Lagerfeld continues to work on the redesign of this shoe keeping the 60-year-long heritage alive. In 2015 Lagerfeld redesigned these shoes as sandals, but kept the original square heel.
