Vintage patent strappy black dancing shoes by Lotus,.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
I love these! They are so shiny, so sexy, in such good condition, and the style is so much back in vogue!
They are sold as used, of course, but the uppers and shiny heel coverings show no sign of wear; even the little holes on the strap do not look pulled. The sole is stamped 'man made upper/sole man made lining made in UK' and the size: 6. The inside - top and bottom - is also shiny, but gold in this case. There is a label: 'Lotus Collection'; the style name 'Rumba' and the size, 6C. I'm told they date from the 1950s.
They are quite wide, so might fit a modern size 6, although I would suggest more like a 5 or 5½. Shoes are always difficult to measure, but these are approximately 9½ inches (24 cms) in length, measured from the inside, and 3 inches (7.5 cms) at their widest point, measured on the sole. Heel height is 3 inches ((7.5cms).
