California Comfort & Chic!

This vintage 1980s California Magdesians shoes are so stylish & sensible. The low heels definitely reference the 1960s, but updated to the luxe times (Hello Dynasty!) of the 1980s.

California Magdesians was founded in 1952. The company is one of the few footwear manufacturers that still makes its shoes in the USA (sunny Cali)! Yeah! The company strives to makes chic yet comfortable shoes and offers a large range of sizes and widths. California Magdesians can be purchased at retail shops as well as online at sites like Nordstroms.com and Zappos.com.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find.

Condition: Good. The shoes show signs of use. Please see Photo 5. The top 2 pics show a scratch on the right shoe (about 1 5/8" long) on the left side of the heel. This is the most noticeable flaw. But I would say when the shoes are being looked at (and inspected) when they're off, not when you are wearing them. The last top pic (furthest pic on the right) shows a mark on the left shoe, on the left side of the heel. The bottom left pic shows a slight scratch on the left toebox. The middle Left pic shows a place on the left shoe heel where the leather has come off (1/8" in size). The far right bottom pic shows a slight scratch on the right shoe heel (about 1/4" in size). The shoes are still very wearable and in no way do these flaws take away from the overall appearance. Please convo if you would like additional photos.
