High-Heeled Shoes

Description:

One pair of woman's high-heeled shoes with split t-strap, forming an inverted "V" from vamp to strap. The shoes are covered in a metallic copper/bronze silk textured weave and edged in gold metallic finished leather. The Boulevard set-under heels are lacquered with a metallic gold finish and set with rhinestones.

One shoe with label inside: "Wise Shoe / For Every Occasion"
Both shoes with hand-marked notations: "6 1/2 aa / D30014 / 11-564"

Some rhinestones on the heels have been replaced at some point in the past with other rhinestones that do not quite match the original stones.
