EDITORS COMMENTS
Step Back in Time: A Victorian-Edwardian Footwear Tableau This evocative photograph, taken in 1899, captures a charming scene of a pair of gentleman's lace-up half-boots, or town boots, and a pair of ladies' shoes with Louis heels, left outside a hotel room. The image, from Mary Evans Picture Library, transports us back to an era of elegance and refinement. The gentleman's boots, with their sleek, polished leather and lace-up front, were a staple of Victorian and Edwardian men's fashion. These half-boots, also known as 'town boots,' were designed for everyday wear and were often made from high-quality materials. The boots' sturdy construction and classic design have endured the test of time, making them a popular choice even today. The ladies' shoes, adorned with a fashionable Louis heel, are a testament to the feminine allure of the late 19th century. The Louis heel, named after the French king Louis XIV, was a high, pointed heel that added an air of sophistication and grace to women's footwear. The shoes' intricate detailing, including the delicate lacing and decorative trim, are a reflection of the meticulous craftsmanship of the time. The presence of shoe trees in the photograph is a nod to the importance of shoe care in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Shoe trees were used to maintain the shape and longevity of shoes by absorbing moisture and preventing creases. The care and attention given to footwear were a reflection of the wearer's social status and personal pride. This photograph, taken at the Savoy Hotel, offers a glimpse into the rich history of costume and accessories during the Victorian and Edwardian periods. The image captures the essence of a bygone era, where the smallest details, such as a pair of polished boots or a pair of elegant shoes, spoke volumes about one's social standing and personal style.
