Vintage Ladies Bowling Shoes

Yes, we really do sell everything but the kitchen sink – actually we’ve sold a few of those over the years as well! But when I spotted these beautifully styled vintage Canadian Kingpin bowling shoes I just had to have them! Not only are they in remarkably good condition for their years (from the story I was told I think they date to the early 1960s), but they’re also super stylish! The only downside is that they’re quite petite – the inside of the shoes read “I38 27 5 M 30/51” – I’m not sure what that means in bowling terms, but having tried to squeeze my feet into them, my guess would be that they’re a size three or maybe four. They’re also made of very structured leather (presumably to offer protection from a bowling ball dropping on your foot!), so aren’t super easy to squeeze your feet into! Other than that they’re rather glorious! So if you happen to have small feet and quirky taste in footwear then this pair are definitely for you!
