These are absolutely AMAZING vintage 1950s high heel pumps. Designed by Palter DeListo they are virtually unworn. SUPERB cellophane metallic, leather soles, they are open toe, sling back GORGEOUS! Size 8 Medium, from the estate of a model who only wore them a few times on the runway.
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 foot. Soles and heels are leather. 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. Marilyn Monroe where are you now?
As you can see from the pictures the leather soles show minor signs of use. Actually, 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. The color is MAGNIFICENT!
