Beautiful black lace up boots with Louis heels circa late 1910s to early 1920s. They are branded as the "Crossett Shoe - Makes Life's Walk Easy."
Very pretty with a narrow, pointed toe. These are so elegant!
+++ Measurements +++
Sizing on boots is always approximate, and I urge you to take careful measurements and ask any questions prior to purchasing.
I believe these are an approximate size 5.5-6 US women's, but please check the following measurements. They are marked as a 37 (EU size, but they seem to run small and narrow).
9 3/4" inner sole length (keep in mind the very pointed toe)
2 3/4" width measured across the bottom of the sole at the ball of the foot, and 8 1/4" circumference at the same spot measured from the outside
2 3/4" heel
10 3/4" total height
+++ Condition +++
Good antique condition with some minor wear commensurate with age. The leather is in great shape, soft and supple, and I have cleaned and conditioned it. There is some minor fading to one side of one of the boots and some light scuffing on the soles. A couple of little spots on the leather, but they present beautifully.
These are wearable with care, but do keep in mind they are antiques. I highly suggest finding a good cobbler. It is usually quite affordable to have repairs done.
These boots were made to last a lifetime, and with the proper care and repairs when needed, they will!
