These are women's walking shoes. The consecutive straps create a decorative effect and beautifully show the foot from the instep to the ankle.
During the latter half of the 19th century, the growth of urban lifestyles and the popularity of taking walks accompanied an increase in outdoor activities. In line with fashion, skirts ended just short of the floor, causing demand for beautiful shoes to increase. In terms of practicality, highly durable shoes made of strong leather became popular instead of the shoes made of cloth or supple leather that had been the mainstream. Provides both functionality and decoration, this beautiful shoe conveys the style of the time.
