To maintain these shoes you'll want a chalking bag, These were made of a heavy muslin cotton cloth filled with white chalk. You can easily make one of these with cotton fabric and "whiting" which you can purchase through art stores. Just pounce it on the shoes to brighten them up... and go find some hot jazz!
Wonderful vintage condition. These have some worn with scuffs but are still in remarkable condition. Some slight crazing along the vamp suggests caking in the chalk not the leather. The leather looks fine. Heels show some wear.
Please refer to the actual measurements and not the shoe size as sizes have changed over the years.
