Beautifully styled sensible alligator high heeled shoes date to the 1950s. Square toed with a modified boulevard heel. Vamp has an abstract rectangular alligator "buckle."

Insoles are marked: Genuine Alligator Pacelle Exclusive Saks Fifth Avenue Young Elite Shops


They appear to be marked an 8 1/2, but the stamp is faint and hard to make out, so please check measurements to ensure a proper fit:

Inside the shoe:
-Insole: 10 3/8" (heel to toe)
-Ball of foot: 3" (widest point)
-Heel width: 2 1/8"

Outside the shoe:
-Heel Height: 2 1/2"
-Volume or vamp: 5 3/8"

(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 an 8 out of 10. Alligator is supple and in very good condition. The soles of these shoes are quite thin and should be replaced soon, although the heels are in good shape with lots of life left. There are white scuffs on one heel. Ready to wear.
