    Bettie Page vintage original custom made patent leather pumps commissioned by Irving Klaw. (ca. 1950s) A pair of vintage patent leather pumps with highly elevated arch ending in a rounded Mary Jane-style closed toe, 6 in. heels, and gray leather insoles. The insoles are marked in grease pencil with "R-8" in the right shoe, and "L-8" in the left. Commissioned by Irving Klaw and custom made in Italy for Page. Highly visible in many of her iconic fetish photo shoots, this style of shoe became known as the "Bettie Page" pump in popular culture. Showing wear to the soles and heel bottoms. Soiling and wear to interior leather insoles. The patent leather surface of the shoes exhibits some scuffing and expected wear from frequent use. Includes (2) later printed 8 x 10 in. photographs depicting 1950s-era images of Page modeling in the shoes. These instantly recognizable shoes remain in vintage very good condition.
