|Pompadour (1680-1740) shoes in black brocade with leather-covered, custom Louis heel, and satin ribbon tie
Hi Ladies! I haven’t died, promise. I’m still working on new historical shoes for you, but we got a little delayed with the Astoria fiasco, and Chris and I didn’t feel like it was right to run another pre-order until we’ve delivered all your Astorias and Kensington shoes.
The Pompadours are coming, though! Originally they were scheduled to be released today, April 16, but now the new pre-order release date is Monday, May 14th.
|The 2.5 inch leather heels have been custom made just for the Pompadours, and future American Duchess shoes needing an awesome, chunky French heel.
Here’s a first look. Pomps will come in ivory brocade as well as the black you see here. Each will have a ribbon tie with it, but the fun part will be pimpin’ your Pomps with any kind of ribbon, pom-pom, or decoration you like.
You’ll be happy to know, too, that the new ivory leather Kensington 18th c. shoe will also be available to pre-order on May 14th. I know several of you have been waiting so patiently for them.
|Kensington will finally be available in ivory, at the $99 pre-order price.
There will be more news and photos about what’s coming soon. Until we meet again, most sincerely…
