Custom designed by Palter De Listo, these shoes are virtually unworn. The leather is covered with SUPERB cellophane metallic in feminine pastel shades.

They have leather soles, are open toe, sling back GORGEOUS! Size 8 Medium. (that is my size and they fit perfectly) They are from the estate of a model who only wore them a few times on the runway. (will be listing more of her vintage clothing... so stay tuned!)

The cellophane metallic, in pastel rainbow shades of gold, green, pin, and blue is just about as mint as it gets. There are no marks, mars or scuffs.

The spaghetti thin straps are woven around the vamp. The soles and heels are leather. The heels are covered in blue metallic. The sole liners are marked: DeLiso Debs, Cosmic Last / Hart-Albin Co. Billings / Designed by Palter DeListo,

Palter Deliso, an American designer is credited with pioneering the open toe sling back pump in the 1930s. This designer's label was most popular during and after World War Two.

These exquisite examples of his work are circa 1955, during the stylish era of Marilyn Monroe.

As you can see from the pictures the leather soles show VERY minor signs of use, just where the model wore them and turned on the runway on her right foot. There is a tiny bit of sticker residue on the sole of one shoe, that is original to the shoe, so you can understand how little they were worn!

Strong, flexible arch, with the buckles working perfectly! None of the straps show wear and the color is MAGNIFICENT!

Size marked on the shoe is 8 Medium / Measurements in inches:

Toe to heel inside is 10 & 3/8 inches, Across the ball of the foot outside widest part is 3 & 1/4 inches. Heel is 4 inches from bottom to top of back of the shoe.
