This is a gorgeous pair of deep brown leather high heels that are in incredible condition, and are in a larger, hard to find size.
Handwritten 8B, these measure 10 and 1/2" from tip of the pointy winkle-picker toes to the back of the heel,
they are 3 and 1/16" across the ball of the foot on the sole of the shoe,
about 5 and 1/2" up and over the foot at it's widest,
and they are a fabulous 3 and 3/4" high.
The label reads "Palizzio... Very New York".
This style of super slender high heel, with a slightly rounded yet very pointed toe dates to the very late 1950s, early 1960s.
These are quality shoes with satin linings, suede heel back for comfort, and leather soles. We have had new heel tips put on them.
There is ever-so-slight wear to the bottoms (see photo, please), and there is a whisper of wear along the back top edge of the heels, otherwise these shoes are amazing, classic, timeless, and very very wearable.
