Description

A fine pair of unusually long, brown, Edwardian, lace-up boots originally for country wear, as confirmed by a UK fashion museum. The boots were for a society lady & have seen very little wear. They date from about 1910 & are of high quality. The original stitching on the soles is visible. They're totally of leather & unlined, with no maker's mark. The stitching of the leather is of a high quality. The heels are of stacked leather. While these boots are not rare, it's unusual to find boots this long. I'm not surprised they received little wear, they hurt like hell. They might even be considered a kind of torture instrument for the feet, they give you an insight into what women suffered before comfortable shoes were the norm. They're small & narrow approx a UK size 3, so best suited for fashion shoots, study, display or as a collector's item.

Condition
Good & original, apart from the laces & new heel pads added to protect the original ones.
There is some cracking to the uppers.
Some of the metal buttons have lost some or all of their enamel.
Some marks to the right boot as shown in photo 5.
The metal grommets are enamelled to the front & all intact. There is slight rusting to their underside.

Approximate Measurements
Length 9 inches 23cm
Width 3 1/2 inches 8 1/2cm
Height 15 3/4 inches 40cm
