I remember my Grandmother wearing shoes just like these. These shoes are in such nice condition, just slight wear on the soles. They are by "Cantilever" and came from the shoe company Showalter's in Kansas City, Mo. They are a size 10 1/2 A, so...long and narrow. The original sales ticket was still in the original box with them showing the sale date of March 1953 and the price of $15.95. I don't know if they were old stock but I think they are really from the 1930's but this is the box that they were in when I got them at an estate sale, or they just could have been in that box. But what a great pair of shoes! They would be great for a theatrical costume for the 30's /50's era. But, please keep in mind that these shoes are possibly over 75 years old, and although in excellent condition, I cannot guarantee that they will be comfortable.
