These are brand new black patent peeptoe platform wedges that have been hand painted on the wedge sections with works by Edouard Manet. The right shoe has "A Bar at the Folies-Bergere" while the left has "Olympia". The paintings fade to black for the platform.

The last picture is a montage of close ups of the artwork on the shoes. If the proportions look a little off, it's just the foreshortening from the heel shape!

You can see the original paintings here:

The shoes have an inside heel to toe measurement of 25.6cm / 10 1/8inch, and measure 8cm / 3 1/8inch at the widest part. They are labelled a UK 6 / 8.5 / EU 39, but the heel to toe measurement is closer to that of a UK 7 / US 9.5 / EU 40.

The heel heigh is 12.2cm / 4 13/16inch, with a 2cm / 3/4inch platform.

I do not reveal my methods or materials, but I have tested previous shoes under stress and water and they should not scuff or wear any more than regular shoes, HOWEVER, due to the detail and price of these shoes, I suggest taking great care to avoid any unnecessary scuffing and scratching.

The shoes also come in a customised box, that features the same design found on the shoes but on the lid and a photograph of the shoes on the side.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

PLEASE READ:
I am not currently living where my shoes are! Despite this, you can still buy, as I hope to have all orders posted within a week of purchase. If this delay is of concern to you, please contact me before purchasing to get a better idea of how soon I can get them posted. Thanks for your cooperation!
