40s Platforms Heels Vintage 1940s Peeptoe Ankle Strap Gold Embellished 6.5
These 1940s platform heels are worthy of a Hollywood starlet! They are designed with all the elements you expect in a great 40s platform shoe - an open peeptoe, slingback ankle strap (with elastic at the back of the heel for comfort), sturdy yet graceful heel and serious platforms. The spectacular embellishment on the toebox, platform and back of heels lifts them to an iconic level.
Labeled 6.5N. My model usually wears a 7M, and as you can see, was able to wear them. However, she did not find them comfortable for her foot size.
|Length, heel to toe, inside||9.3"||23.5|

Black suede, lined in gray leather. The embellishments are done by outlining shapes with narrow black and metallic soutache cord. The centers of the shapes are painted with antique gold.

Dark silvery buckles with five notches for the ankle strap.
These have been lightly worn and well cared for, and the basic elements are in excellent condition. There has been some loss of gold paint over the decades, and wear to the soutache cord has caused the metallic thread to become a bit more noticeable on close inspection in some areas. Minor quibbles for such glorious shoes.
