Pumps

Description:

Pair of pumps. The open-toed shoes have vamps formed of black leather covered in a rhinestone-covered black fabric "bunched" at center with a circular rhinestone-set black metal button. Silver leather and elastic "spring-o-lators" linings. 3 1/4" black plastic spike heels set with rhinestones.

Written inside vamp of each shoe: "6 1/2 [illeg.] / 1616ind / 6486"
Stamped on each lining: "Neiman-Marcus" and "Spring-o-lators / Pat Pend"

The spring-o-lator was invented by Beth Levine in the 1950's. The elastic created tension which kept backless heeled shoes on the feet.
