Yellow leather w/ black polka dots.
Walk Right In 11/98-3/99 At the turn of the eighteenth century, colored leather with dynamic painted patterns replaced silk brocade for the uppers of women's shoes. Although the pointed toes evident in this pair of shoes fell out of fashion around 1805, their low heels foretell the penchant for flat soles, which persisted through the next half century.
Handwritten on lining: ""Worn by Sarah Smith in Boston 1765"" And in other shoe: ""Prunella Shoes""
