"Old red shoes" 6"x6" oil on gessoboard


I bought these red Perry Ellis shoes in 1985/86 my first winter in Chicago at a great shoe store in the Loop between Randolph and Michigan Ave on my lunch hour. They were my first (and last) pretty, leather shoes I ever bought.  I have danced in them until the leather is paper thin on the bottom.   They are 25 years old, does that make them antique?
