Mary Jane(s)

Inspired by the shoes of the homonymous character in the comic strip Buster Brown, Mary Jane shoes are traditionally made of black patent leather and worn mainly by girls, although in the past they have been worn by boys as well! Typically "Mary Janes" have low heels, rounded closed toes, and a buckled strap across the instep. Over the last years, though, "Mary Janes" tend to be more stylish and pop, appearing in different colours and with higher heels gaining popularity among older girls aka women!

I love the Miu-Miu ones! You forgot Manolo Blahnik Mary-Janes :)
But as Carrie Bradshaw said: 'I thought these were an urban shoe-myth'
