1958 | ALBANESE OF ROME | THE NEVER ENDING SAGA OF THE FISH SHOE

Until the contrary is proved, this striking "fish line" from Albanese is probably the first Fish Shoe copy since the original one (1955, André Perugia).

FOOTNOTE
A different version of the fish-shoe was showcased at the exhibition Roman Inspirations (Artisanal Intelligence/AltaRoma, August 2014) and it sports a heel that predates Roger Vivier's globe heel (1966). Or is it a replica?? Oh well, the more we learn, the less we know.

Enzo Albanese was known for elegant women's shoes and inventive heel designs (more to come).
