Sweet round toe pumps with a chunky 2 inch heel in black suede. The vamp has half moon cut outs with dipped sides. A leather strap rises from the instep, crosses the foot and wraps around the ankle - purely decorative and highly fashionable in 1949. (see advert from Sept 1949). Leather soles and lining.
Very good possibly unworn condition, the soles have a few marks that suggest they may have been worn round the house. there is a tiny hole in the right heel - see pics.

Will they fit me?
Converting vintage shoes to modern size charts is a minefield. This is why I give sizes in inches. Compare the pair you are thinking of buying to a pair of a similar style you already own which fit well.
Refer to our size chart for a rule of thumb conversion.
I use as much recycled packaging as possible with a minimum amount of new to ensure safe delivery.
Which shippers do you use?
I use Royal Mail, domestically and a combination of Royal Mail and your national carrier abroad. So for example USPS in the United States.
