In Memoriam: David Evins, Shoe Designer

Twenty years ago today shoe designer David Evins passed. He designed exquisite shoes for celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Ava Gardner.He dressed the feet of every First Lady from Mamie Eisenhower to Nancy Reagan.

This elegant example of Evins' style is a classic 1950s snake skin stiletto, each scale tipped in gold. Evins gained popularity among wealthy stars by focusing on comfort and lightening the weight of shoes during the 1940s, while creating beautiful designs in high-quality materials.
