After seven years of living in my closet I decided to give these babies up to someone who can appreciate such an incredible relic of true 40’s glamour, sized for the modern babe!

Asian influenced dragon on the toe and heel of the shoes. Dainty beaded flowers ring the ankle strap, taking these shoes above and beyond any true collector's expectations.

The shoes are in surprisingly sturdy condition and absolutely wearable today, though carefully, as they are still over 70 years old. They're an evening shoe at that, meant for a refined and classy lady who refrains from garish stomping and what have you.

There are a few repairs to the shoes that happened before they came into my hands. The largest is a patch job 1”x1/2” at the inside toe of the left shoe (as pictured). It's barely noticeable, and does not take away from the beauty of the shoes. There is also some minor wear at the upper heel and toe of the shoes, as they are very old (as pictured).

Please message for more pictures of wear and repairs.

Shoes are marked a size 42 (!) but PLEASE see measurements below. They will probably fit an 8.5-9.

Length: 10”
Width at ball of toe: 3.5”
Front platform: ⅝”
Heel hight: 3 ⅝”

I wear a modern size 9- 9 ½” and they fit me well, as the uppers are fairly wide and can accommodate a healthy size foot.

We will ship to other places, just message us and we'll give you an estimate!
