Image Info

This pair of shoes are fashioned in an iridescent, purple kidskin leather also known as gunmetal kid. The gold beaded cut-work of the shoes added a sense of elegance, elevated by the metallic color.

While worn in Maine, the shoes are of New York origin, designed by Andrew Alexander, located on 6th Avenue and 19th Street, sometime between 1910 and 1920.
