Judy Garland rehearsal shoe from The Wizard of Oz

Judy Garland rehearsal shoe from The Wizard of Oz. (MGM, 1939) Judy Garland”s right rehearsal shoe, worn in her iconic role as “Dorothy” in The Wizard of Oz. Garland wore these simple red heels during rehearsals so as to not damage the ruby slippers festooned with bugle beads. The red taffeta shoe is size 5 ½ and lined with a cream-colored kid leather. Made by the Innes Shoe Co. of Pasadena and Hollywood, it has a black felt pad on the sole to minimize noise of footsteps on the set. The shoe has the internal serial number AG 752503 U20 and is handwritten in black ink “#2 Judy Garland”. Includes a packet of original crimson/burgundy bugle beads from the production. Originally acquired from renowned Hollywood collector Kent Warner. “This shoe is authentic to MGM Production 1060–The Wizard of Oz. It was purchased for the production from the Innes Shoe Company of Hollywood & Pasadena and bears the distinctive company label embossed in silver on the instep of the kid leather lining. The specific shoe type and size was, before beading, the basic foundation of what would become Judy Garland”s Ruby Slippers. Multiple pairs were beaded for the production but some would have been held in reserve, in case another pair were needed. I would describe this shoe as a naked ruby slipper.” — Rhys Thomas, author, The Ruby Slippers of Oz’
