Black crepe fabric shoes are decorated with uniquely structured bows with three prong set rhinestones. Delicately pointed toe with a lovely curved heel. Date to the New Look Period of the late 1940s or early 1950s. Leather soles, rubber heel taps. Blush colored leather lining with matching insoles and suede at the heel.

Labeled: Selby Arch Preservers

I thought these shoes were marked a 6, but then I noticed that it appears to have been stamped upside down as there is a 4 A that follows the 9. These are mighty narrow and will fit a size 8 best but please check measurements to ensure a proper fit:
-9 5/8" insole (heel to toe)
-2 7/8" at ball of foot (widest point)
-1 7/8" heel width.
-3" heel height.
-5 5/8" volume or vamp
(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.)

Good vintage condition rating a 6 out of 10. Well worn but these beauties still have plenty of life and wearings left in them. Very little wear to soles and heel taps. There is a gouge on the right toe. Also some gouges at the bottom of heel fabric.
