Ferragamo was one of the great masters of shoemaking. A genius, really, who made his first pair of shoes when he was just a child. He was born in 1896 and the world lost him in 1960.
These amazing pumps were handmade, have an almond toe, with a small V split across the vamps and a buckle and slender strap over the V.
It's very rare these days to come across a pair that were designed and made by Ferragamo himself (other than behind glass in a museum) and made at the height of his illustrious career.

The Condition: Very good to excellent. The uppers have no flaws. Some of the gilding on the insoles has rubbed off from wear, and there's the usual wear on the soles and heel taps. As with all Ferragamos, they wear like iron due to the high quality of the materials, so there's a good 60 more years of wear left.
The Shipping: Delivered by Senor Salvatore, I mean Priority mail, within the U.S.; International First Class to Canada, and International First Class to Everywhere Else.
Yoohoo, International buyers! Your country may charge you customs fees on your purchase, which you're responsible for paying. Just so you know ahead of time and aren't unpleasantly surprised :)
