The 1950s Booster Shoe

History repeats itself...

The 1950s Booster Shoe

Ever since Mad Men reminded us how awesome the 50s was (well, apart from the smoking and sexism obviously), we've been trying to emulate Don Draper as much as we feasibly can.

We're clearly not the only ones. While the entire Mad Men collection at Banana Republic gives us the chance to resemble a Sterling Cooper employee, we now need to master the weekend look.

It's highly likely that Draper and his cohorts wore the Booster, the top-selling style of the decade. It's been introduced to the world again, thanks to a collaboration between Keds footwear and US designer Mark McNairy.

You can buy your own pair at Urban Outfitters and you can take a look at some vintage Keds ads below:
