Comments: At first glance, I thought they were the classic Pigalle 120. But upon arrival, they look more like so kates, but the heel is thicker. And the thing that throws me off the most is that there is a Vero Cuoio, old stamp on them. They appear to be authentic, but maybe a style I'm not familiar with? Not classic pigalle 120, so kate, pigalle follies, that I'm aware of... They're higher than Follies would be. I'm stumped here. TIA ladies!

From the listing 1st pic, they look like one of the oldest version of Pigalle 120 instead, low cut on the toe box and heel straighter. Try to google older versions and compare with yours. Not the current style IMO.

They are the older (BETTER) cut. The older cut came in 3 versions:

sculptured curved heel (very thick near the heel, very narrow heel tip like the current So Kate heel)
Decolette curved heel (not as thick above near the heel, thicker bottom portion of heel)
straight drop-down heel

The heel in question is the latter. The 2 earlier versions are VERY hard to find. I have 4 of them (2 sculptured, 2 Decolette)
