Pair of woman's black suede, high-heeled pumps. The shoes are decorated with a subtle, perforated design, black patent leather trim, and a small bow. The shoes were made by the Selby Shoe Company as part of their "Styl-EEZ" line, which was popular in the 1940s. A mark in one shoe indicates that the style was made expressly for the John Braitsch Shoe Company of Wichita, Kansas. According to city directories, Braitsch operated a shoe store in Wichita as early as the 1870s.
