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 then compare that to the garment's measurements. Don't forget to allow room in the fit for comfort while sitting, etc... The waistband on bottoms is held taut while measuring to provide the most precise measurement possible. If your waist measures 26 inches, it would be a good idea to by jeans that have a 27-inch waist to allow for "breathing room".
Vintage sizing is very different from modern sizing. For example, a vintage 6 may fit like a modern 0. That is why it is especially important to judge the fit based on the measurements.
Clips are rarely used to alter the fit of the item on the model, but if so it will be stated in the description. The goal is to show the item exactly as it is. Please note that colors can vary widely from computer screen to screen.
● CONDITION RATING:
Excellent - no flaws found, like new
Good - one or two minor flaws, normal signs of wear
Fair - shows several signs of previous wear, may need repair
Please keep in mind that vintage clothing by definition is decades old and in most cases pre-worn. Flaws of note will be stated.
