Classic vintage high heeled loafer shoes by Italian luxury leather house Bottega Veneta. These are not very old vintage, dating only from the 90s, but I snapped them up for the shop as it is so rare to find anything second-hand from Bottega Veneta – their pieces of such high quality they are usually kept for generations. These shoes have a squared off toe, with a silver snaffle type buckle on the vamp, which is tied together with a leather knot. The sides and heels are closed, and the heels are in a high chunky stacked style. These shoes feel like a dream to walk in; the leather is extremely soft and the soles are padded. I’ve never tried on any shoe so comfortable, this design house has an amazing reputation for good reason. Label states Bottega Veneta, made in Italy. Vero cuoio (real leather).
Size is marked on the base as 10B, which is UK 7.5, EU 42, US 10, AUS 8.5, but check measurements. Condition is very good. There is some slight creasing at the front, a few small dings to the heels, wear on the soles etc, but nothing serious.
