1950s,60s Corde Shoes

Gorgeous Vintage Lotus Corde Shoes

Beautiful Vintage Shoes

Product Description

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.

In the 1940s and 1950s the fabric was popular for its durability and, over the years, we have been able to bring the beauty of Corde handbags to our customers.  However, this is the first pair of shoes we have found and it is a pleasure to be able to offer such a gorgeous vintage treasure. The intricate patterning on the vamp of the shoe make them look very special indeed.

Length – 9⅜ inches
Width (across ball of foot) – 2⅜ inches
Heel – 3¼ inches

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.

Condition: one or two marks on the heel of one of the shoes but, otherwise, these beautiful shoes show only light wear.
