BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE ALMALFI MADE IN ITALY FOR NEIMAN MARCUS GOLD LEATHER-TRIMMED SANDALS
Elegant vintage Almalfi made in Florence, Italy expressly for Neiman Marcus
They are an ivory or beige peau de soie-type fabric trimmed in gold leather with gold interiors - the name of the style is “roidone“ - i used to buy almalfi shoes in the early ‘70s & just loved them but but they are not that easy to find nowadays & the ones i have found are not as glamorous as the shoes made back then - i had planned on wearing these cute sandals with slacks or capris but would also look good with dresses or skirts but unfortunately, they did not fit as I really wear a size 8 - 8-1/2 but was just hoping.
The shoes have slight scuffing on them as shown in the photos but it is pretty minimal - the size is 7-½ narrow & the sole measures 9-5/8” long on the inside & 3-1/8” across the widest part of the ball of the shoe - the heel is 2-¼” high - “all leather made in italy” is stamped on the sole - the actual heel tip on the shoe looks perfect with no wear whatsoever - tiny adjustable straps on the shoes - very expensive looking sandals which i am sure they were knowing almalfi & neiman marcus
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.
