Description: Black silk, open-back, T-strap shoes with a 1 1/2-inch-high narrow Louis heel. One thin gold-colored leather strip trims the inside edge of the vamp; a silver strip trims the outside edge of the vamp. They meet at the center of the instep and turn up together to form the T-strap. The gold strip encircles the ankle, while the silver strip turns down to form the vertical support on either side of the ankle. The shoes have narrow oval toes. The heels are covered in silver-colored leather, and end in a black nylon top piece. The vamp is lined with shiny white faux leather; the same material is used for the sock lining.
