The Most Far Out Shoes of the 1970s : Top Footwear Styles and Trends
We've covered some of the biggest shoe trends of the 1970s in this slideshow, but chances are, you may have already known about those -- they were the biggies, after all.
However, platform soles and cowboy boots weren't the only styles we were slipping into in the seventies. Some of us also couldn't get our fill of the following trends and styles.
Roller Skates:The decade started with Melanie's number 1, smash hit "Brand New Key," (a.k.a. "The Rollerskate Song"), and it ended with two of the seventies' hottest female stars roller skating across cinema screens across the country: Linda Blair in the 1979 filmRoller Boogie, and Olivia Newton John in 1980'sXanadu.
In between, we hadRollerball; disco skating parties at local rinks; andThe Facts of Life's"Tootie" spending the entire first season of the popular television show on skates. But whichever of those phenomena had you jumping on the trend, there was one thing that was certain: you wouldn't be out of place attending any 1970s party in a pair of roller skates.
Disco Slides / Slide Sandals:You had to be the right age at the right time to fully appreciate this one, but there was a brief window in the late 1970s when there was nothing cooler than heeled slide sandals, or "disco slides," as they were sometimes called. Candie's introduced their classic, single band, wooden-heeled slides in 1978, and teen girls and young women were instantly hooked.
Maybe it was the fact that they were advertised in every magazine we picked up. Or, perhaps, we just all wanted to look like the "bad girl" version of Sandy inGrease. But, whatever it was, those of us who are a certain age, will always have a soft spot in our hearts for the original Candie's slides.
Patchwork:Patchwork jackets, bags and hats also experienced a spell of popularity in the 1970s. And, being as the decade was all about extreme shoes, this look also had to make its way onto footwear. It did so mainly in the form of knee-high, platform boots.
Were patchwork boots as hot as, say, platform shoes? No. But, for those who lived through the 70s, it would be impossible to see patches of multicolored suede without thinking of them.
