Incredible 1960s Chartreuse Ghillie Pumps by Pappagallo
Chartreuse green suede pumps with open ghillie lacing and an exaggerated Louis heel make these mid 60s shoes stand out from the crowd. They come in their original box which tells us the style is called Montmatre. Along with the Chartreuese colour they are clearly channelling the French New Wave styles. Leather sole, fabric lining and insole.
Condition is fairly worn, they have obviously been much loved. They have been resoled at some point and are a bit grubby round the toes. The old laces which are in the box have snapped so have been replaced. The inners are also worn. Having said all that they are wearable, or maybe you might just want to admire them because they are so fantastic.

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.
