private showings

When you’re in our neighborhood, we’d love to have you stop by for a visit. We’ve had visitors from as far away as France, South Africa, and China — not to mention from all over the USA!

We don’t have regular hours, so please call or contact us to set an appointment for your private showing.

“Nothing about visiting
  a Vintage Sole is your
  run-of-the-mill shopping
  experience. 

  Entering the barn is a
  ‘wow’ moment.”

“Shoe lovers of all ages flip
  for their fashion details
  and construction.”

what you’ll see

Though we have the largest known inventory of unworn vintage shoes on-line, we have many items that are still waiting to be added to this website. This includes not only women’s shoes, but men’s and children’s shoes, boots, and slippers as well. We’ve had several visitors purchase some rare classics before the rest of the world even knew they existed!

Since you most likely will have your feet with you when you visit, why not try on a few pair — or a whole bunch? Our veteran shoe fitter will be there to help and the warehouse manager knows where all of the gems are shelved.
