Sadly, petite ladies want heels not flats. Maybe a price reduction will convince someone to buy these preposterously fantastic tiny boots?

Only the Italians could make a chic, understated, damn-near minimalist cowgirl boot in the 80s. Black on black on black, between the wingtips [!!], stitching and body of the boot, made in Italy for Bandolino. Traditionally-shaped cowboy boot heel, but in a demure, wear all day, walk all day 1.5 inch/4cm heel. US women's size 6M.

These were very gently worn, with some scuffing to the rubber toppy sole as shown and on the right boot, the tip protector they had someone nail to the heelcaps on both boots is half worn away on the right shoe. A quick trip to the cobbler and they'll pry that right off, leaving a nearly perfect heel for *you* to walk on.

The suede on the tips and at the heel is slightly lighter in person, but not quite the charcoal shade you see in the photos. I had to crank the exposure to show the decorative stitching, which makes the boots look a bit lighter than they are, which is very black indeed. These sexy little boots are in excellent vintage condition and should slouch beautifully with some tender loving wear.

A note about suede: don't fear it! It's such a beautiful texture for shoes and much easier to care for than folks make it out to be. A clean, soft, dry toothbrush is the perfect 'suede brush' when they get dusty and a good healthy dose of waterproofing suede & leather spray once or twice a year is all you need to do. If they get muddy, let them dry for a day or two and brush 'em off with the old toothbrush. No wire! Or you'll make a sad little bald spot. Take it from me, I'm a native Oregonian, former Nordstrom shoedog and have owned & loved many suede shoes.
