The cutest pair of shoes from the 1940s. These are made of a cream white leather with colorful embroidered flowers on a sturdy net which feels like a strong cotton. Slingbacks with ankle straps, peep-toes and a fairly high heel for that time.

Condition - Very good - some glue showing where the net would have originally been affixed to the sole of the shoe. Some markings on the heels, a matching shoe polish should take care of that.
