From "Ladies Dress Shoes of the Nineteenth Century with sixty-three illustrations" by T. Watson Greig of Glencarse.

Text for plate II:
"Illustrates three black satin shoes. The first, without heel and very square toe, was, no doubt, comfortable, but decidedly unshapely foot-gear. The sole is thin, and there is no attempt at ornamentation, even to hide the elastic ankle strap. As this shoe dates back a considerable number of years, it serves to show the many modern improvements of its two companions. . ."
