Women's 40s Platform Heels Vintage Black Reptile Peep Toe Ankle Strap

$ 110.00 Sale Save

A killer pair of 1940s peeptoe platform heels! They feature a thin platform and a wrapped toebox, slightly squared at the toe, with open triangle sides. The ankle straps buckle in front, and have sturdy elastic at the back for more comfortable fit. I love the addition of a small strip of sturdier leather over the reptile strap where the buckle fastens to protect from excess wear and tear. The heel is sturdy but with a graceful curve.
