You can see the white shoes previously here.

From Me:

Why no "From the seller"? Because I can't remember when the heck I got the black and tans. :-) These are both Edwardian shoes that are now apart of my personal collection. (I'll try to get pictures of the Regency shoes I have tomorrow!) The black is a day shoe that looks very similar to the Gibson shoe American Duchess will be offering next year.

The black shoe has a nice almost Art Deco tan leather design on the side but a very sensible heel. You can see the difference in the heels when I put the two shoes together. Although they are both roughly from the same period, the white shoe is clearly for evening or "special occasion" wear.

I *think* both shoes are roughly a modern 6.5 but I wouldn't dare try them on anyone to find out. The leather on both is in excellent condition. The white shoes leather is a very fine kid leather while the black shoes feel more like my everyday work shoes leather (I work in an office and wear mary janes or mules a lot.)

Because these are just upstairs, feel free to ask questions about them. Or, if you want pictures of other items in my collection, just ask. I need to start organizing those buggers better...
