Roger Vivier: "The Faberge of Footwear"

These exquisite silver pumps with rhinestone buckles are the creation of "the Faberge of Footwear," Roger Vivier and were made for Saks Fifth Avenue, probably in the early '50s. A Parisian shoe designer of the highest order, Vivier worked with both Christian Dior and Yves St. Laurent, and his fabulous footwear was worn by Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich--even Queen Elizabeth II for her coronation in 1953. You may never have a coronation, but these shoes could be yours...
