1960s Winklepickers by Ritchie Deluxe


These vintage shoes were made in the 1960s.  They are marked Ritchie DeLuxe and Genesco. They are a cap toe winklepicker design, with extremely pointed toes and a cuban heel.  They have leather soles and nailed heels.  The heel lining on the right shoe is a bit loose, and there is a small punch through the leather in that shoe, both visible in the shot showing the text inside the shoe.  They are stamped a size 8D on the footbed.  From the amount of wear on these, I’d say they were tried on once or twice, but never actually worn, as even all the text on the sole is legible. The sole measures 12″ heel to toe, and 4″ at the widest part.    Photobucket
