From the 1920s, a pair a fabulous formal shoes in wearable condition.
- Black velvet fabric with silver leather trim
- Rhinestone-covered heels
- Leather and fabric lining
- Rhinestone buckles on the ankle straps
- Heels can be used on another pair of shoes
Labels: only a tiny and illegible bit of handwritten information remains
Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton velvet, painted genuine leather, metal, rhinestones
Condition: wearable, with care and a narrow foot. please see all photos for views of all flaws, which really aren't bad at all. the buckles are missing several rhinestones and the heels, just a few (easily replaced). the silver paint is worn off in several places, especially on the ankle straps (this could also be repaired). the leather is worn and separating in some spots (mostly at the buckle), but is not brittle. the insole liners have detached (but are easily glued in place). the outsoles are in good shape, but the heel taps are unevenly worn so might need replacing to be comfortable. keep in mind that the heels can be transferred to another pair of shoes if and when the time comes.
Dimensions (these are not particularly tiny, but are quite narrow):
interior, tippy toe to heel: 9.5"/24cm
interior, ball of foot: 2.5"/6cm
exterior, over the top of the ball of the foot: 5"/12.5cm
heel height: 3"/7.5cm
