Alligator pumps designed by Evins expressly for I. Magnin & Company date to the late 1960s or early 1970s. A women's clothing store so fine, my Mother worked there in the 1960s strictly for the discount. Tapered heel of medium height. Fold over detail at toe vamp has a gold toned metal tab. Lovely variety of pattern in the alligator of these shoes. Leather soled shoes have rubber heel tips.


Measurements

These respectable pumps are marked a size 9B, but please check all measurements to ensure a proper fit. If you are accustomed to using centimeters, I suggest you use a conversion chart like this one:

http://www.manuelsweb.com/in_cm.htm

-Insole: 10.25" (from toe to heel)
-Width at ball of foot: 3 1/8"
-Heel width 2 1/8"
-Heel height: 2"
-Volume or vamp: 5.75"

(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.)


Condition

Very Good vintage condition rating a 7 out of 10. Considerable wear to soles and heels, but there's still plenty of life left before they should be resoled. There are some dry spots on these gator shoes. The slightest bit of cracking can be seen. No gouges or splits. These pumps look magnificent on one's foot, and none of the flaws will be visible to the naked eye.
