Vintage Italian High Heels

R250.00

You’re probably thinking, “now I’ve seen everything”, and yes, it does seem a bit peculiar for us to be selling shoes, but when I came across a collection of high-end vintage Italian heels at a collectibles auction a while back, I just couldn’t resist the temptation! Whoever these shoes used to belong to clearly had something of a fetish for fancy Italian sandals, as there were literally dozens of pairs, with many of them still in their original boxes! Sadly I was only successful in bidding for two pairs (one of which I’m cheekily holding onto!), but this pair by Bologna & Figli were one of my favourites, so I walked away a happy lass!

Don’t they just shout ’70s discos queen to you?! They do to me! They’re an Italian size 8.5, but I’m a size 5 and they fit me just fine – that being said being Italian they’re quite narrow, so if you have a broad foot, stop reading now. Obviousy they have been worn before, but the soles, while scuffed, are still in good condition, as is the rest of the shoe – this lady was clearly quite committed to looking after her investments! And investments they are – it’s hard to find prices for these sandals, as most of the Bologna heels I came across were already sold, but it seems that good quality vintage Italian heels go for anything from $50 to $150 – about the same price as you’d pay for a new pair of good quality high heels!

P.S. Click here to see some slightly more professional photos of today’s shoes – clearly shoe photography is not my forte! Nor is shoe modelling – excuse my lily-white feet, but I wanted to give you an idea of how the heels looked on….

Dimensions: 25cm long x 8cm wide (across sole of foot) x cm tall (excl. strap); SA size 5
