Beautiful vintage footwear by Lotus Shoes.
I think these gorgeous vintage Lotus Corde Shoes may date from the late-50s or the early-60s judging by the heel. They are a peep-toe model with the name ‘Padova’ on the inner. They may be a UK Size 4.5 or 5.
The gorgeous fabric suggests they may have been made by the British Corde company, best known for their durable and stylish handbags so popular in the 1940s and 1950s. We do have a brown handbag which bears the label, ‘Match-Makers’ By Lotus and I’m sure the two companies worked together on matching shoes and handbags though I’m not sure if the two items we have are actually a match. Why not pop over to our Handbags section and take a look?
Condition: one or two marks on the heel of one of the shoes but, otherwise, these beautiful shoes show only light wear.
