Pair of light blue, polka dotted kid leather shoes with low heels. Leather stamped with black lines.
The colorful pointed toes of these shoes would have peeked out from beneath the long hems of the high-waisted cotton dresses popular around 1800. Although the pointed toes soon went out of fashion, the taste for low heels and even flat shoes lasted for the next half century.
