From disco to disco, and back.

Some girl was quite the bomb dancing to Donna Summer in these shoes!

They're snakeskin platforms with a very high heel, so you needed some practice to look sexy and relaxed and not break your ankle at the same time. They've been with me for a while, and every once in a while i'd take them out of storage, look at them, peep my toe in, of course they don't fit which made me feel like Cinderella's stepsister...

They're leather all over, snake skin on top, and a thick leather on the soles. They're a lovely dark tan colour, very difficult to convey via photographs. They've been worn by the girl in the disco, which gives them more soul, and they have one real flaw: the right shoe has a tear in the sole close to the heel (see 4th picture), because the leather on the sole has hardened over the years. This would make them hard to wear (unless you have them fixed), but I think they don't belong on feet anyway.

They belong in a museum. Or in a collection of a serious collector who will take good care of them.

I'm sure the disco girl still dreams about them every once in a while.

"I feel looooooo-ooo-oove..."

Condition: worn, snakeskin good, soles hardened leather, tear in right sole (approx. 2 cm.), but still fairly good vintage condition

Measurements:
-european size 37, U.S. size 6 1/2, UK 4.
-heel 11 cm. high.
-I've measured them on the inside, from toe to heel: 24 cm.
-widest part, ball of foot: 7 cm.

N.B. 1 cm = 0.3937 inch.


They're very rare, for sure.

I ship them with registered mail.
