Sturdy pair of black patent leather and canvas classic 2 tone Spectator style shoes with stacked wood heels from about 1918; The toes and all the trim are perforated, and they are wearable.

They have leather soles AND original box. They are " Walk Over" brand.

This is part of a collection we recently procured from Carey's Shoe Store, a store that was established in 1919 in Charlevoix, Michigan. The family recently decided to let go of the remaining stock of the store, about 150 pairs, most new and in their original boxes. ?


Marked Size: 37, corresponds to a Ladies US 6.5 or Mens 5, and comparing to a modern shoe is about right. They are narrow.

Measured length inside, heel to toe: 10”
Width across bottom: 2 7/8"
Heel: 2 3/16”
Condition: New in Box, though they have storage soil and light age staining on the canvas. Also patent had paper stuck to it, which came off but left residue.So maybe best for costume or design unless you can live with it.The soles are still soft and supple.

Note:we do not guarantee that these shoes will hold up for any specific period of time. They are old, but in excellent condition structurally.
