Description: Brown leather, front-lacing, whole foxed boots. The toes are a narrow oval, and the stacked heels are one inch high. Decorative punch work crosses the vamp in three rows; the same treatment edges the foxing and borders the laced edges. The boots are laced through seveteen pairs of eyelets with a brown cotton shoelace tipped with black-enameled metal; the lacing is backed by a matching leather tongue. The welted sole is shaped for the right and left foot. The top piece of the heel is reinforced with metal tacks in an arc along the outside edge. The boots are lined with white twill-woven cotton.
