1950s DEADSTOCK Copper and Gold Patent Leather Peep Toe Pin up Heels

Deadstock 1950s copper and gold patent leather peep toe slingbacks. They are marked a Size 5.5AAA, but I was able to get my toes into them and I’ve got pretty wide feet in the front. Heel 3.25in. They are by D’Alexis for the Joseph Larose warehouse. They need new insoles and there is scuffing on the heel. BUY
Vintage can run 1/2 size smaller than modern sizes. Also, while never worn, certain precautions are strongly suggested before you wear your vintage purchase: re-glue or replace the insole, replace the lifts and replace the soles. These actions should be easily handled by your local shoe repair. And the minimal cost involved will improve the longevity of your vintage shoes.
