The Classics: Miu Miu Suade Mary Jane Pumps
Mary Jane was a character created by Richard Outcault for his comic strip, Buster Brown. Published in 1902, Mary Jane was the little sister of the main character, Buster Brown. Outcault used this comic to advertise his products for The Brown Shoe Company and eventually the style of the shoe worn by the little girl became known in popular cultures as Mary Janes.
Traditionally made in black patent leather and only worn by young girls, the current style of the Mary Jane has come a long way. Available in platform, stiletto and chunky heels and with bauble and buckle garnishes, the Mary Jane is the classiest classic.
The Suade Mary Jane Pumps by Miu Miu are the epitome of the classic feminine shoe. Perfectly constructed, this shoe is not only elegant but adorable at the same time. The sexy stiletto and platform adds height and balance as the dainty strap reveals it’s feminine nature.
The Mary Jane can be found in many forms and designer’s collections. Celebrate the holidays with your favorite party dress and Mary Jane.
