Gorgeous and totally unique, these 1980s vintage Claude Montana black suede ankle boots are topped off with a luxuriously silky soft black fur trim along the outer edge, chic pointed toes and head-turning sculptural stiletto heel. Impeccably made with attention to all details, these boots are everything! Zips up at the back of the leather wrapped heels, leather sole, smooth leather interior, man made heel cap. These appear nearly unworn and come with the original box! There is some imperfection on the suede backing of the fur on one boot as seen in photo #8. Not noticeable at all as it's on the underside. If you don't love the fur trim it would be easy to trim this off completely to have a sleek, chic and simple high end black boot. Either way, these are so beautiful!
From the designers Wiki:
"Born in Paris in 1947 to a Catalan father and a German mother, Montana began his career by designing papier-mâché jewelry covered with rhinestones. Later, he discovered leather and the complex techniques associated with it, eventually becoming a leading force in leather. His first fashion show took place in 1976. He was an avid colorist and favored blue, red, metallic, and neutral tones, in luxurious materials such as cashmere, leather and silk. He started his own company The House of Montana in 1979, and quickly became a darling of 1980s high fashion along with Thierry Mugler, who also favored aggressive shapes and strong colours."
