era - These shoes are from the 1940s
Maker's name - Palter DeLiso, from Sommers at Jay Thorpe 57th St West
Marked Size - 8-1/2B
Actual measurements - inside they are 9-7/8 inches long, 3 inches wide across the bottom, the heel is 4-1/4 inches tall
Fantastic! Brown leather embossed faux crocodile platform shoes with peep toe and slingback. The heel is 4-1/4 inches tall and they have a 7/8 inch platform under the toes.
They still have their original 'Sommers Jay Thorpe' bags, but no original box.
Condition - Excellent condition. Very minimal wear. The leather is nice and soft, and so are the ankle straps.
The only flaw is a 3/4 inch knock in the side of one platform, see photo.
Vintage shoes are not returnable. I cannot predict the wearability of shoes. I will not pay for any repairs on shoes once they are in your possession.
