Walk Right In 11/98-3/99 This pair of women's boots is an early example of thick soles shaped for right and left feet. Their side laces and trim make them fashionable, while their directional soles and slightly thicker heel express a rare concession towards comfort. Rights and lefts did not become the norm for dressier women's shoes until later later in the century.
