Samples of two pairs I own, these were made in America by Capezio. They are styled like authentic Western-wear but with 3″ stiletto heels! It seems like they were a short-lived fashion moment, more or less. Well-made and nicely detailed, anyway.
Some other company may have made something similar, but these are probably the nicest and are a true late 1970’s fashion moment. Looked great with jeans. Just the thing to wear when you’re going out to do the Texas Two-Step. (maybe line-dancing?)
Capezio has been a popular shoe company for many years. The founder started his shop in the late 1880s, specializing in footwear for dancers. They are probably still best known for that.
When I found these, three pairs were together – probably from the same original owner. Bonanza!
