Potts Buckle Shoe
These 1970 Mary Jane style pump have qualities that echo from decades past yet still spark a twist with youthquake culture. Buckle, Mary jane style pumps do not necessary scream youthquake. However, these specific pumps have modifications that do resonate with themes that carry across youthquake culture such as nods towards androgyny with the buckle, pronounced bold colors, and twisted or skewed perspective and distortion in the form of the shoe. The Texas fashion collection describes the shoe as “pumps of red-orange leather. The shoes have a squared toe, a very wide "Mary-Jane" style strap over the instep which fastens with an over-sized rectangular gold buckle on outside of foot, and a modified "bell bottom" or Louis style 2 3/4" heel.” The designer of the shoe was "Town & Country* / Shoes / *TM REG", the creator was unknown and the donor was Ellen Flottman.
