This is a pair of Authentic Vintage Heels from the late 1930s or early 1940s. They are either Crocodile or Alligator leather.... I'm not positive which, but they are in lovely shape for their age and use. Someone took very nice care of these.... they even have Leather soles, with metal tips on the heel and toe, to prevent wear at those points. There is a lot of wear left in these!

The best part is that they are a wearable size for us modern folks..... they are about a size 8 in modern sizes, or a 7.5. I wear a solid size 8 and these do fit me, even the width which is MEDIUM. They are soft and comfortable to wear and have a great chunky heel for walking. There are no holes, cracks, etc. They are a little worn, but NOT split, at the very top of the backs above the heels, a good shoe repair person could tidy that up. If you look at the soles, you will see what looks like a crack under the ball --- they are NOT cracked and even when bent, that doesn't come apart. I think that at some point the previous owner must have had new half-soles put on because they were valuable shoes at that period.... still are, because it is no longer legal to make shoes and bags from Crocodiles or Alligators. These are definitely on the collectibles list! There is a name seen very faintly on the inner sole .. might be Wini. It's kind of fancy but very hard to read.

Measurements:
Heel to Toe --- 10.25"
Ball at widest part --- 3.5
Heel at center back--- 3"

Thank you for your interest in these wonderful shoes!

I sell many Vintage items—please remember that VINTAGE means the item is around 25+ years old, it has almost always been used by someone, and may have a few flaws….if you want something perfect, then please do not buy Vintage! I do my best to point these flaws out, but I may miss something occasionally, so please be kind. Please check all pictures closely.

I am an individual seller, with a limited budget, so I seldom offer free shipping.


Canadian Shipping amounts are ESTIMATES....I am going by First Class International rates, for items that weigh less than 4 lbs. For a large, heavier item, I may need to request money from you the buyer, to cover the cost. If I have overestimated your shipping charges by more than $2.00, I will be happy to refund the extra to you!
