Description: Pair of woman's green suede shoes with pointed toes and stiletto heels. Each shoe has a design, created by a punched hole technique, around the edge of the shoe and over the toe to form a cross near the point. The edge of the upper is bound by grosgrain ribbon. The shoe has an insole with the name of the company stamped in gold. There is a suede lining at the heel and toe. Each shoe has a high narrow heel (6.5cm) with a very small steel top piece (cap). Each heel has a synthetic cover made to look like wood. The sole is possibly vinyl with a small round metal tap on the tip. A: left B: right
