This is the classic oval toed version of Gucci's Horse Bit Loafer. The black leather and stitching are in wonderful condition- you will be pleased! But I would consider having the front protected from further wear with a Vibram sole protector. I should have done this with every leather soled shoe I bought. This leather is not the glove leather sort but is box calf- thicker and very durable.You might look at the price of these now. I hope you know how Gucci shoes from the 1970's fit. I find the run small. This one of mine has become too small for me.
The ball of the foot measures 3 1/2" on the bottom of the sole and its length is 10 3/8"- a lower heel height than some of my Gucci loafers have had- under 7/8. I'm not fond of the term "iconic" but these are that.I will be listing a Gucci shoulder bag. That is earlier than these loafers but is equally fabulous.
