1900s Brown Ladies Edwardian Laceup Captoe Boot with Straight Stacked Heel

 

 

 

These most likely hail from the period between 1900 and 1910. 1900 marking the departure from short, curvy heels with a spade-shaped “footprint” when heels became very straight with a sharply-cut concave breast (the term for the front of the heel). Also, this period marked the extreme elongation of toes – the precursor to the post-1910s when footwear styles became all strangely rounded (as though you were curling your toes under).IMG_1310
