Illuminatingly, this pair of shoes are still marked with their original price tag, which tells us that they were reduced from twenty-six shillings and three pence down to two shillings in 1943. They are a clog style sandal with a wooden wedge heel. Wood was often used in shoes during the Second World War due to the scarcity of other materials. They have three straps to go across the foot, held in place by nails.
