This little pair of shoes is unusual in design and style. Made for a French fashion doll, they would be appropriate for either a Lady or a Gentleman. The soles are incised with the number "4", which is indicative of a doll in the classic 17 - 18" (43 - 46 cm) size. The shoes measure 2 1/4" long x 3/4" wide (5.5 x 2 cm). The uppers are made of black kid leather which has been lined in cream kid creating an outline around the opening of the shoe. the toes are square, and the tongue is high and also squared. Each shoe has a small black compo heel.
The shoes are in generally good condition with supple leather. I will state that they have had some repair, with some tearing to the leather uppers that has been repaired with reinforcing black kid patches to the weak areas. If the shoes are handled carefully and not forced onto a dolls foot, these repairs should hold satisfactorily. I believe that these shoes are meant for a doll with a stuffed kid foot.
