The pinnacle of footwear styling in the Edwardian period was The Beaded Shoe. Nothing is quite so lovely, so sparkly, so special, and so enticing. Beads could be found on both shoes and boots, and accentuated the already gorgeous cut- and strap-work that was so popular at the time. Here’s a look at what’s inspiring my grey matter today:

These are so gorgeous! I love all the teardrop cutouts and the straps!
It's great to see that so many of these have contrasting beads, since shoes are dyeable and glass beads aren't.
I LOVE those boots.

Absolutely love the pink shoes with the blue buttons! Love them all but those ones speak to me.

I love these shoes but I have always wondered whether there is a chance (or not) that dress fabric might get stuck because of the beads?

That's a really good question!
