Vintage 1940s Womens Shoes | 40s Ecru Cream Ivory White Block Heel Ventilated Wingtip Heeled Leather Oxfords w/ Nylon Mesh Insets | US 7.5/8

Sorry, this item has sold.

These sporting Art Deco-era heeled oxford shoes are sure to make a statement at the country club or out on the dance floor at a Gastby picnic! Shoes features fabric-trimmed ecru leather uppers, heels, and wingtip toes with double rows of self-colored topstitching at edges. Front insets and tongues are made of matching cream nylon mesh and trimmed in topstitched taupe leather. Lace-up fronts feature punched eyelets and ecru rayon braided laces. Shoes have leather soles and synthetic heels. Wingtip toes are accented with teardrop perforations. Oxfords are partially lined in palest nude blush leather with partially detached leather insoles; mesh insets are unlined. Both shoes have scuff marks on inner heels and minor scuffs at toes, but are structurally sound with lots of wear left! These shoes are otherwise in good vintage condition with only minor signs of wear to the fabric, lining, soles and heels. 

Marked a UK size 5.5D (US Size 7.5/8), but please see the measurements for accuracy:

Insole Length: 10.5"
Outer Width: 3.25"
Heel Height: 2.25"
