Such a sweet find.
Does anyone remember Bloomingale's old 'B' Logo?
They had that until the mid 70's,
when they changed over to a modern lower case font.
These shoes were made for their Sutton East shoe department.
Leather inside and out.
Gray suede swirl divides the shoe beautifully,
Cream upper, and black toes.

In excellent, previously owned and worn condition.
Leather soles have moderate wear.
Original toe tips to protect the sole, too.
Outer portion of the shoes are great with the exception
of the discoloration around the outer edges of the shoe.
I dont know enough about leather to tell you if this can be cleaned,
or dyed another color to hide that.
Small flat rub on the top of the 2" heel, you can see it in the photo.
Some scuffs on the surface on both black tops.
Other than the above, the shoes are in great condition.

Please zoom in on all the photos, so you can see the detail.

The shoes are marked vintage size 6 1/2 (AA?) and should fit a current day 6 narrow.
Please take note of my measurements below,
and compare them to a similar shoe you own, for a sure fit.

The bottom sole width, across the ball of the foot is 2 3/4"
Heel, is 2".
Insole length is 9.5", measured with a metal tape measure heel to toe.
With heel up against wall, heel to toe measurement along the side of the shoe, is 9 1/4"

All my items for sale come from a non smoking home.
