Details & Specs

1943. The Allies have invaded Italy. A formerly mighty wartime economy lay in ruins. Things would not turn around for Italy until the late 1950's, when a Marshall Plan-funded program of modernization would result in an "economic miracle" of record-high growth rates. Between those two events lay a dark and uneasy period of austerity, hunger, and incredible hardship evidenced by these remarkable Navy Deck Shoes.

Facing shortages in almost all raw materials, the Italians crafted these Shoes from wood and repurposed burlap sackcloth. A trim of recycled metal is roughly hammered around the outside for extra strength. Each hard, unyielding insole offers a dark glimpse into a daily regimen of past suffering. Heavy and durable at 1 pound each, these Shoes make excellent paperweights and decorate accents around your office or den. Hard wood construction is perfect for smashing bugs or cracking nuts. Most pairs are a size 9, but these are definitely not for daily wear.

  • 1950's era manufacture
  • Metal nailhead trim
  • Solid wood soles
  • Burlap fabric
  • Approx. 5.5"h., 1 lb. each
  • Collectible, definitely not wearable

A unique find for your collection!
