Women's gaiters

2006.44.1342.3ab (RS12267)

Description

Camel colored canvas women's gaiters. The gaiters have an opening on the outer side of the leg. One side of the opening has eight metal grommets forming holes and there is a sturdy yellow string coming out of the top hole. On the other side of the opening there are grommet holes on the top and bottom to tie the string through and in between there are seven metal hooks with solid rounded tops around which the string would be looped to bring the two sides together. On the bottom there is a strip of thick leather attached on the left side that goes under the shoe buckle on the right side. The gaiter comes to a point in the center at the bottom so that it covers a large portion of the shoe. The hooks are reinforced on the inside by a thick piece of leather and the grommet holes are reinforced by a strip of heavy canvas material.
