Very lovely bright white kid leather shoes circa 1890s. These were possibly worn for a wedding, which would explain their excellent, well-preserved condition!
The kid leather is very soft and supple. The laces appear to be original.
+++ Measurements +++
Sizing on shoes 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 4-5 US women's (they are marked as a size 3 and this would generally correspond to around a size 5 today), but please check the following measurements.
8.5" inner sole length (with pointed toes)
2 3/8" width measured across the bottom of the sole at the ball of the foot
+++ Condition +++
Great condition overall, especially considering their age and color! There is some minor wear, namely some nicks around the heel area, as shown. Also some discoloration to the laces and missing aglets.
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.
