Unbelievable vintage late 60s platform shoe in amazing condition!
Insane, sculptural, wooden heel crafted of mountain pine.
Clear plastic uppers with peep toe are attached by huge silver studs!
To make these even more rare, the ORIGINAL BOX is included!


Here's more about the shoes, that's printed on the box:


"Sabots are wooden shoes. People all over the world have been wearing them in one form or another for over a thousand years. We shape our Sabots like modern sculpture, cantilevered to make you look like you are about to take off. Each Sabot is individually cut out of Mountain Pine, reinforced with hardwood strips, (that funny stripe running through the bottom) then dipped in fine aniline dye and coated with clear Egyptian Lacquer to seal in the colors. You can wear Sabots in really cold weather with striped or colored wool socks and panty hose. Both create happy graphic effects. Experiment with different looks- like fake tattoos. Just have a good time- that's what we had in mind for you."
