Description

A pair of child's shoes made from red leather with a pebbled texture. The toes are pointed, as is the tongue, which is pierced with two eyes for threading. The edges are finished with cream-colored (possibly white originally) silk grosgrain ribbon covering a cord. There is no interior lining. The soles are smooth leather, with a small wedge heel.
