Bought these shoes used, I did, because they are really funky and fun. After I bought them home I tried to identify them and, even with the power of the internet, could not. The logo on the inside bottom of the shoes looks like “LGL”, “or a wierd “IGI”. They are oxblood coloured with multi-coloured elastic in between the strips of leather. Distinctive they are, but still I cannot identify them. If you know the maker of these shoes please leave me a message. Thanks.

These shoes must have been expensive to make, as they are thin strips of oxblood leather stitched together with thin strips of multi-coloured elastic. Because there is so much elastic they fit your feet very well and are comfortable, but I doubt they would last with hard wear. The heel cup is rigid. The sole turn up at both the toe and heel areas, for some added protection.

They are not well worn. The inner liner seems to be a thin pig skin. They are comfortable. Note that they can be worn for a day and are comfortable but have next to no grip. Maybe the rubber is very old?

I received them with the right zipper jammed and in need of repair. I was able to repair the zipper with the exception of the top of the zipper, which was worn and had lost zipper teeth. Instead I zip stitched that side, stopping the zipper pull from going too far and disengaging both sides. The leather is in remarkable shape.

I have tried searching for “LGL” or “IGI” and cannot match the logo or the model number 369-3. There are no other markings inside or outside of the shoe. The sole pattern looks like 2 sizes of small bubbles repeating. The shoe size is 38.

Who is the she maker? Where were they made? I would like to know.
