Sculptural, wooden heel with camel color leather strappy top attached by large silver studs. These are pretty comfortable despite being a little heavy. Use zoom button next to photo when viewing from a computer.

The shoe maker used this description to explain the concept behind their shoes: "Sabots are wooden shoes. People all over the world have been wearing them in one form or another for over a thousand years. We shape our Sabots like modern sculpture, cantilevered to make you look like you are about to take off. Each Sabot is individually cut out of Mountain Pine, reinforced with hardwood strips, (the stripe running through the bottom) then dipped in fine aniline dye and coated with clear Egyptian Lacquer to seal in the colors. You can wear Sabots in really cold weather with striped or colored wool socks and panty hose. Both create happy graphic effects. Experiment with different looks- like fake tattoos. Just have a good time- that's what we had in mind for you."

How to judge fit:
Measurements are taken in inches. The best way to determine if a garment will fit is to measure yourself or your clothing and compare that to the garment's measurements. Please allow room in the fit for comfort while sitting, etc... For example: If your waist measures 26 inches, jeans with a 27-inch waist would allow for "breathing room". The waistband on bottoms is held taut while measuring to provide the most precise measurement possible.

Vintage sizing generally runs smaller than modern sizing. A vintage size 8 may fit more like a modern size 2. That is why it is especially important to judge the fit based on the measurements.

Excellent - no flaws found, like new
Good - one or two minor flaws or normal signs of wear
Fair - shows several signs of previous wear, may need repair

Please note that all items are vintage and natural signs of wear should be expected. Flaws of note will be stated. Colors can vary widely from computer screen to screen.
