* VINTAGE 60S BLACK PATENT HANGING BEADS & PEARLS MULES SLIP ONS RESORT HIGH HEEL SANDALS
Vintage 1960s resort slip on mules / black patent leather high heels adorned with hanging beads of clear faceted & black beads accented with tiny pearls on the top of the strand of beads and the ends. I still remember wearing a white pair of these beaded slip on heels and going dancing in them. They were so comfortable and sturdy because of the wide block heel.
These vintage resort wear and summer shoes are just adorable and perfect for at home or vacations. The very comfortable 2-1/4" heels are a perfect height for going out in the evening or during the day shopping. There is no thong strap that goes between one's toes that always hurts so much. There is the main strap that comes across the top and goes to the sides around the middle area of the shoe and then another small strap from the side in front that joins the top main strap. There is no size marking on the shoe so go by the measurements.
I wear a size anywhere from a 7 B (medium) to an 8-½ AA. I tried the shoes on and they were very comfortable on me the way the straps were situated. The shoe is
9-1/2” long measured inside and 3-¼” across the ball of the foot measured on the sole and 2” across the back where one’s heels would rest. The block heel measures 1-7/8" across side to side,2-1/2" from the back to the front of the heel and 2-1/4" very stable heel when wearing.
Although these have been in my collection, I have not worn them but someone else has. Former owner crossed out something on the bottom of the shoe with a black marker but no one will ever see that.
They are in very good condition with very little wear. Scuffing on the bottoms as they have been worn but if that bothers you, the shoemaker can put on a new half sole very easily. The actual heels themselves are in very good shape and it looks as though it is the original "tips" if you want to call it that on the heels themselves
You just don’t see such adorable shoes with detailing like this anymore unfortunately. Love the beads as they move as one walks and are so pretty .
These would be adorable with a vintage pair of shorts, romper or dress especially for Viva Las Vegas, a cruise or when staying at a resort!
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
