These elegant, distinctive slingback heels, by Paul Mélian, are in very good vintage condition. They do not appear to have been worn much at all. The outsoles are in excellent, excellent condition.
The insoles, as well, show almost no sign of wear.
Indeed, the only significant wear is on the heel, where a few flakes of the varnish have kind of flaked off. But this is a pretty insignificant flaw. It almost looks better that way, for as sophisticated and polished as these shoes are, a little contrast can't hurt. Certainly they do not look shabby, not at all.
What a dream these are....Really, one of my favorite pieces to have come through the store, ever. If only they were a half size larger. Alas, it never does any good to think about these things. My loss is your gain.
They are marked a size 8 B. Seems about right, but go by the measurements, please.
Measurements taken along the outside of the shoe, with the width measured at the broadest point:
Width: 3 inches
Length: 10 1/2 inches
Heel: 4 inches.
Made in Spain.
