80s vintage Famolare Dance There taupe nougat suede oxford laced shoes, with wavy gum soles.
Legendary Famolare lace-up oxford shoes from the early 80s, are ready to take you there!

'Dance There' is the name of this Famolare shoe style. Famolare designs were patented, and manufactured in Italy to a high standard of quality. The famous wavy sole is key, and gives the wearer improved posture and lofty gait. Totally remarkable!

In researching this pair of shoes, I wrote to the Famolare company, receiving a kind reply stating that Mr. Famolare said that this style was produced in the early 80s, and was worn by Rosie Radiator! Watch her in action here:

Rubber soles are imprinted with the Bicycle symbol, and marked: Famolare Patent Pending Made in Italy
Dance There
Brass metal bars at front marked Famolare. Even the metal shoe lace grommets are imprinted with the maker's name.

Natural tan nougat nubuck leather uppers. Though color may look slightly pink in some of the pictures, it really isn't. Shoes are a neutral light tan color, closest to the way they appear in the last photo.

Shoes are near mint, with no wear at all on the rubber soles. A few light smudges and creases, from storage, and factory glue marks, as pictured. If these are your size, I advise nabbing them, as Famolares are increasingly hard-to-find, and especially rare in this style, being in such marvelous condition.

Size 7.5 M
Please, by all means, rely upon the measurements for fit. I suggest comparing the following measurements, to those of similar shoes in your wardrobe.

Length, measured on inside, heel to toe 9 3/4" inches.
Width of ball, measured at widest point of sole 3" inches.
Width of heel, measured inside 2 1/4" inches.
Heel height, variable from 5/8" inches to 7/8" inches.

Please read 'Shop Policies' before making your purchase.

Why buy vintage footwear? In a word, quality. The superior production methods and materials of the past, will allow you to own a much higher quality, stylish item, than similarly priced new shoes. It's that simple.
