Help dating vintage T-strap shoes!

    Hello everyone! Newbie here.

    I recently acquired some incredible (in mint condition!) vintage shoes that appear to be a 1940s/1950s T-strap style, but there is literally nothing out there in the Internet on this brand: Styled by Bulatta. I know there's a chance these could be a later repro, but the styling of the brand name seems more mid-century than 70s, 80s or 90s to me. Maybe I'm wrong. That's why dating these is so tricky!

    Details: Leather uppers and soles. These appear to have never been worn, and I don't believe they were resoled either as the uppers are in pristine condition. There's elastic where the buckles attached, and it's miraculously not shot.

    Brand: Styled by Bulatta

    Description: Cognac brown leather with brogue-ish detailing on the toes, which are a square shape. Stacked heel, which I believe is leather but could be faux finish.

    Size: Marked 7B

    Those are very well made shoes. I really do not know for sure, but they look a lot like a pair I had in the late 1970s. Lets see what others think.

    Another vote for 70s, with those stacked wooden heels. Lovely!

    Thank you everyone for your help! Now that the consensus is in, and I've been staring at them on my dresser for the past week, I'm definitely convinced they're from the 70s, too. :)
