I purchased these gems for myself a few months ago and have determined they are too big for my narrow size 11 foot. Could you blame me for buying them despite the ill fit? Anytime my rather large foot fits in a vintage shoe, I buy it. These 1930s black leather oxfords were no exception. Leather shoe gives way to mesh inserted in a decidedly Art Deco design culminating in a wing tip style toe box. Leather soles, rubber heel taps.

Labeled: Dr. Scholl's


These shoes are marked a size 10 1/2 3E, meaning they are mighty wide and will probably fit a US size 11 wide or 12 best. Please check all measurements to ensure a proper fit. I recommend comparing them to a pair of similarly styled shoes that already fit you well. If you are accustomed to using centimeters, I suggest you use a conversion chart like this one:


-Insole: 11.25"
-Width at ball of foot: 4" (widest point)
-Heel width: 2.5"
-Heel height: 1.75"
-Volume or vamp: 7.5"

(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. There are some scuffs to the leather, particularly on the right toe box and around the heel. Just some general wear and tear consistent with age. Ready to wear and enjoy for another lifetime.

If you like these vintage shoes, see more in The Shoe Department in both my Etsy shops.
