Please take these off my hands, it pains me that I cannot wear them.
They're too wide for my feet :(

Swap #5: Metallic Silver Vintage Shoes

Size 9

I came across these shoes way back in high school--they were amongst some of my first vintage items I ever bought. Found them on the mezzanine of my very favorite antique store back home in Evansville, IN.

I wore them only once; they're very fragile and delicate...and sadly I realized I could not fool myself any longer. My feet are not a size 9; therefore these cuties are too big on me :(

They're darling. From the silver lame fabric ("lame" as pronounced le-may. I just can't seem to figure out where the French accent mark is on my keyboard--it is not "lame" as in, "loserville"), to the rhinestone detail, to the fact that the brand is named, "Miss America"!

As mentioned, they're size 9.
(Approx 10-1/2" length)
Heel height: 2"

These shoes are at my guess 30-45+ years old.
(all you vintage experts out there, correct me if I'm wrong-or let me know exact era please)

And with age, there's slight aging...
-A faint brown-ish stain grazes the left shoe flat
-The flap of left shoe is coming detached (as seen below, easily fixable w/some stitching or glue)
-Shoes, especially left, is minimally stretched out as if a wide foot once wore these.
-Slight yellowing on the inside of shoe
-Overall, the right shoe is in good condition, left shoe is poor condition
(but with a little love, I'm certain they can be restored. With that said, they're both still very wearable)


I'm interested in swapping for:
-A Vintage Accessory of some sort
-Name your own Swap
-And of course, anything from my Wishlist would work.
