Quality made I. Magnin black alligator shoes. Slim stiletto heels with a moderately pointed toe and a lovely unusual alligator buckle on the toe vamp. Leather insoles with suede lining at the heel. Shoes have leather soles, metal toe protectors and plastic heel taps. Insoles are marked: Magninique for I. Magnin & CO. These shoes will be shipped in a striped I. Magnin & Co. shoe box that I believe is the same period as these shoes, although not the original box.


Shoes are marked 8 AAAA indicating a very narrow US size 8. You will find they fit a US size 7 best. As these shoes are rather narrow, please check measurements to ensure a proper fit. All measurements (except heel height and volume) are taken inside the shoe.

-Insole: 9.75" (inside heel to toe. Note the pointy toe!)
-Ball of foot: 2 7/8" (widest point, inside of shoe)
-Heel width: 1 7/8"
-Heel Height: 2.75"
-Volume or vamp: 5 1/8"

(VOLUME: Using a flexible tape measure or piece of string, on one of your best fitting, similarly styled shoes, measure, with your foot in the shoe, from the welt stitch [where the sole is sewn to or attaches to the upper part of the shoe] on one side, up over the top of the foot to the opposite side at the welt stitch or attachment point of the sole to the upper. This measurement gives an idea of the “Volume” of your foot and the true size of it.)


Very Good condition rating a 7 out of 10. One very small gouge to the outside heel of the right shoe. The original owner put an extra arch support pad in almost all of her shoes. They have been removed, but a tiny bit of the adhesive remains in the arch of the insole. Overall wear inside and out, as these shoes appear to have been frequently worn.
