1951 Women’s Brown Fur & Rubber Overshoes with Dated Receipt from Chandler’s Shoe Store

Oh, provenance is so yummy.

These beautifully date themselves with a receipt stating the date they were purchased. Iconic rabbit fur rubber galoshes – meant to be worn over your sexy heels. Most of these are made to be worn over stocky-heeled sensible work shoes. But these have a particularly high heel on them. Chandler’s French Room Shoes are always pretty hot – so it follows that their “rubbers” would be dead sexy!

From the Chandler’s Shoe Store at 174 Main Street in Buffalo, NY.
