These are rare survivors and very strange shoes for a child.

They date to the 1970s and come from a range of shoes made by Norvic (more usually known for their more traditional lines of shoes which would be worn with a kilt, as well as boots and shoes for the military). Norvic are a top brand - so these shoes are certainly of good quality. The company no longer exists sadly - after having an interesting history dating back to the mid-19th century.

The company was struggling to maintain its place in the modern shoe market - and in the 1970s launched this "fashion" range - called Young Generation.

This platform show was made for a young child - and imitated the fashionable range worn by teenagers and young adults at this time.

The colours are very "funky" and made of orange, mustard yellow and black leather - the sole is made of a thick, heavy rubberised material - again in an orange-rust colour. I have taken photos so that you can assess them - they are in good vintage condition, hardly any signs of wear - perhaps worn only once as all the gold printed text inside the heel section is without rubbing - and the only issue is a wee scuff on the toes - as photographed.

The uppers are made of a thick leather - and they retain their original laces.

There does not appear to be a shoe size on these - but I think that they are a Child's Shoe Size UK 12.

Here are the measurements of the shoes: Heel to toe is 7 ¾ inches (19 cm). Heel Height is 1 ½ inch. Platform Height is ½ inch. The widest part of the sole is 2 ¾ inches.

These are probably not shoes for a young child to wear everyday.. but more for special events or occasions.

Nice quirky items for a collector of vintage fashions or shoes.

As mentioned - children's original platform shoes from the 1970s are now hard to find - so these are quite rare survivors.
