Acrylic Heels.

Throwback to the 70’s and 80’s.  These high end acrylic heeled shoes remind me of the sample shoes I would see as a child in my dad’s home office. I spotted these in the window of CHUCKiES on Madison Ave. the other day.

I posted this photo a while back I found of my grandfather from 1972 at the offices of Schwartz and Benjamin in New York.  I wish I knew who the man in the photo was. From the expression on my grandfather’s face and his clenched fist I think it may be Sam Schwartz, Ben Schwartz his former partner’s brother.
