Disclaimer: Vintage shoes - especially from the 60s and 70s - can be made from man-made materials have what we consider an inherent vice (a flaw which might worsen over time): the soles are glued rather than stitched. This glue can degrade with time and the soles *could* come away from the uppers. It's unpredictable for us the seller as it depends on the manufacturer, the type of glue, etc. To guarantee that this never happens, we recommend the buyer takes the precautionary action of having the soles RE-GLUED prior to wearing.
