These vintage shoes come from an estate of drop dead gorgeous vintage clothing and accessories from the 1940s through the 1960's. These shoes are from the late 1940's and were made by Robert Evins for I Magnin. I would keep these for myself if they were in my size and you will be able to wear them for many years to come! If you haven't heard of Evins shoes, you should know that his shoes were considered some of the finest of the day. Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly are just a few of the celebrities who wore Evins shoes. His shoes were sold to wealthy, upperclass women who preferred classic elegance. If you haven't heard of him, it is probably because early to mid 20th century shoe designers didn't receive much notoriety as the later designers. Every time I am asked to take a look at a prominent estate, they almost always have Evins shoes in their closets, and once you have owned a pair of Robert Evins shoes, you will understand why!
This beautiful brown alligator pair are a size 8 B with 3 3/8" heels. The shoes have the regular sole scuffs but are otherwise in excellent condition!! These shoes measure 3" on the outside at the widest part of the sole.
