If you've been looking for the boots from the cult classic Desperately Seeking Susan, starring Rosanna Arquette & Madonna, look no further!

Black with a black mesh netting of sparking silver sequins with seed bead "rhinestone" centers, these shoes were the ultimate back in 1985 when the film came out -- and remain sought after today. I guess the literature was right -- because look! The pair of boots comes with its original sales slip which reads: "A Sensation Now -- A Collector's Item Later!"

Designed by the film's Costume Design Assistant, Alison Lances, for Orion Pictures, Bakers/Leeds was the exclusive licensed source for the boot. However, the cloth label inside reads "Town & Country." Not sure if that was a Bakers-Leeds name or what... Would seem authentic as it came with the promotional slip as well as an advertisement to mail in for the Desperately Seeking Susan jacket. (We are including this with the boots, as well as the box they were found in -- however, the box does not bear the same stock number as the boots. Boots are stock number 97124-15490-3; box is for Varsity Walkers, no. 35-14881.)

Along with the sparkles, these booties feature a small kitten heel. The zipper sides allow for the sides to be folded down.

Straight out of the 80s and hard to find!

Circa 1985.

Marked size 6B. (Measures 3 inches across ball of foot; measurement taken on the sole of the shoe/boot.)

Conditions: Authentic vintage; there are signs of wear / use, but completely wearable. Please view photos and ask questions prior to placing your order - thanks!

We always package well & ship with tracking. The boots will be shipped boxed, via USPS Priority, with enough insurance to cover the purchase price.

We happily combine shipping to save you money -- just let us know what else you are interested in!

Thank you for shopping with Fair Oaks Antiques & Vintage.
