The gorgeous Anna May 1920s high-heeled Mary Janes are the quintessential footwear of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Simple, elegant, and refined, the curves of these beautiful shoes accentuate the foot while the perfectly-balanced 3 inch / 7.6 cm French heel lends comfort and stability without sacrificing style.

This iconic shoe was popular from the mid 19-teens and was beloved of Flappers, working women, and movie stars alike. Anna Mays are perfect for dancing, walking, and lending vintage style to any outfit.

Heel too high? We also offer a shorter-heeled version called Millie!

The shoes are beautiful and comfortable, and I can’t wait to buy more colors!

Brilliant Shoes

Thank you for restocking Anna May in my size in oxblood and black. I was able to purchase both, and the colors and leather quality are gorgeous. I usually favor a 2.5” heel at highest, but these are the most comfortable 3” heels ever; barely know I have them on. Classic, elegant, and so versatile. I have very high arches and am actually able to slip them on buttoned without overstretching the button elastic - or alternatively the button is easily managed with the button hook. The vamp and strap are not constricting, and like all of my other (numerous!) AD shoes and boots, I tend to go up 1/2 size. The overall fit is well-balanced and just marvelous. Love them!

FINALLY!!!!!! 😍🥰

I have wanted a pair of classic Mary Jane shoes for SOOOOOOOOO LOOOOOOONG!!!!! But being a 10 1/2 medium and needing something with no higher than 3 inch heels due to a low arch in my foot made them almost impossible to find. Then one day I saw a woman wearing a pair of shoes and ask her where she got one and she told me she got them from American Duchess. And I came across these shoes that are LITERALLY AN ANSWERED PRAYER!!! And best of all, they arrived, literally on my birthday in time for me to wear them out that evening. Not only did they perfectly accommodate my outfit, but were surprisingly comfortable all night long. There are no words to express how happy I am to have found these. The only thing that would make me happier would be a pair of the same shoes in a mood or camel color. 😉#justanidea

Love how they feel!!

So glad I finally bought these shoes. I’ve been debating for a while to buy them and I’m so I did!! They are incredibly comfortable and that’s a surprise to me!! I bought the button hook with the shoes. The hook makes it much faster and easier to get the shoe on. I wouldn’t recommend trying to use your hands or brut strength it won’t work. Use your brain and just get the button hook!! Thank you again American Duchess P.S now I’m hooked and will buy more of your shoes!!

Amazing shoes!

"Amazing" is not an overstatement. As I took these shoes out of the box I really hoped they would be as wearable as they were beautiful. Not only were they wearable, they may be the most comfortable pair of heeled shoes I have ever owned (right up there next to the Londoner Edwardian Oxfords I also ordered). I did purchase the buttonhook after reading the other reviews which I strongly recommend if you don't already have one kicking around somewhere. AD sent a "How to use a Buttonhook" video along with the delivery notification. It's super easy once you get the knack which doesn't take more than a few tries. These Mary Janes are beautiful, well-made, impossibly comfortable, and worth every penny.
