You couldn't dance the Charleston in slippers or high-heeled pumps -- no, ma'am; they'd fly right off your feet! That's why this style of footwear was favored by flapper girls of the 1920s. The heels were relatively low and straps across the instep kept them on, no matter how hard you kicked up your heels. Rediscovered as old store stock in the 1970s, these exquisitely made brown Mary Janes entered my personal collection then, along with several other pairs. I've worn them only a few times, so they're still practically pristine. Notice those wonderful engraved buckles, the fancy cutwork details and the inset accents of snakeskin or some other reptile. These are *soooo* jazzy!

Size is about a U.S. ladies' 5, so these are for you if you're a Cinderella with tiny feet. Of course they'd also be marvelous dress-up shoes for a girl; the equivalent child's size is 2 1/2 - 3 and the heels aren't too high for a special young lady.
