1970s Joseph LaRose Chocolate Leather T-Straps

 

 

 

Joseph Larose is one of those revered shoe designers women speak of with awe. You know, that hushed voice used by those (like us) who wish they could get appointments with hair gurus like Fekkai or Garren. "Oooohhh, Frederic", they whisper enviously. Well, as far as Larose, the awe is with good reason. Just look at this shoe! A classic wing-tip t-strap in chocolate brown leather, accented with the tiniest glimpse of metallic gold peeking from the perforation on the upper. Size 9.5 Slim, and we do emphasize slim, the width is 2 7/8” with a narrow, tapered 4” heel. In mint unworn condition, the only issue being curling of the insole. $140
