In the 1840s fashionable daywear included small, half-height boots with increasingly wider and longer skirts. In England these boots were called "Adelaides", after the wife of Great Britain's King William IV. These narrow, half-height boots are made of brown-rose wool satin and their flat heel is laminated with a segment of leather. The toecap with flattened top is trimmed with black leather. A centre seam on the instep proceeds from shaft to toecap. The lacing, underlaid with a tongue, lies laterally on the inside and runs through ten eyelets, bordered with silk. All edges are trimmed with grey-brown silk ribbon. The inner sole is lined in glove leather and the rest of the boot is lined in white linen.
