Really nice pair of vintage 1930's or '40's leather shoes. Subtle wingtip with black smooth and suede leather. Nice wearable size.

Letter upper and leather soles. Heel appears to be man-made material. Ties / laces to close.

I measured the length of these shoes by holding the measuring tape along the curve of the sole, from heel to toe on the outside of the shoe. I did not pull the tape tight between heel / toe. These shoes measure 11.5" long. Ball is just under 3" wide. Heel is 2.5" high.

Insoles are marked "Dickerson, Wedge Balanced". I do not see a size stamp.

These shoes area bit rough, though still wearable. The insoles are dry and curling on the edges. I did NOT attempt to cover scuffs to make shoes appear in better than actual condition. Heels are scuffed, but rest of upper is in better condition.

I will also combine shipping on purchases from my other Etsy shops, http://www.etsy.com/shop/OldFashionedNotions

Returns & exchanges

I fully guarantee the accuracy of my listings.

I specialize in vintage clothing and understand that, despite accurate measurements and descriptions, an item just may not fit as desired. Simply return the item (at your shipping expense) and I will offer you store credit for another item which will be better suited for you.

In order to take advantage of a return or store credit, please notify me promptly upon receipt of the item in order to arrange a return. Items must be postmarked within 5 days of receipt and returned in the same condition as it was sent.

I will refund orders by request of the seller if that request is made prior to shipping the order. However, I will charge a 15% cancellation fee on the purchase price of the item.

Shipping policies

I typically ship USPS Standard or Priority. I will happily insure shipments for an additional cost, if you like.

I offer FREE combined shipping!! Order as many items as you like and I will ship, Domestic or International, for the price of only one item.

I hate to wait for my purchases to arrive and assume my buyers are just as impatient! I promise to ship quickly--usually the day of or the day after the sale.

I am not responsible for errors made that are out of my control during the shipping process! This includes domestic and international shipments.

The Postal Service recently implemented a policy in which packages may not be marked "Fragile" unless a vastly higher special handling fee is paid. If you need your parcel marked fragile or insurance added, please let me know prior to shipping.

Please note that I usually ship International orders USPS FIrst Class International. This method is much more economical, but slower and is not tracked outside the US. I will happily upgrade to USPS Priority if you are willing to pay a little extra. Just convo me and we will work it out.

Additional policies

I will hold an item for 30 days with a 20% non-refundable deposit. Please let me know which item you would like to put on layaway, notify me of your PayPal address, and I will send you a PayPal invoice for the deposit. I will then change the listing to reflect the layaway status. This ensures another seller will not purchase your item while it is on layaway.

I have been in this business for approximately 15 years and make it my goal to offer unique, high-quality goods and focus on customer satisfaction.
