This pair of women's shoes was probably designed to be worn with a walking dress. By the beginning of the 19th century more practical footwear for both men and women was in demand, though fashion had to be taken into account as well. The woman’s shoe is very similar in style to the man's velvet shoe with which it is shown. Both have a low wedge heel, round toe and latchets tied well over the instep.
