Pair of women’s high-heeled shoes, Anonymous, c. 1690 - c. 1710

l 21.8cm × w 7.7cm × h 9.5cm. More details

These shoes have thin, high leather heels and a short vamp with pointed toes. It must have been difficult to walk in them since the ball of the foot never actually touches the ground. The heel tends forwards which at least gives the front of the foot some support.
