Victorian Black Velvet Carriage Boots$185.00
Victorian ladies often wore elegant little shoes called evening slippers when going out for a ball or formal event, but these delicate shoes (usually made of silk) weren't really suitable for anything but indoor wear, especially on muddy streets.
Particularly during the colder times of the year, carriage boots were a fashionable yet practical option to wear over the slipper during your carriage ride.
They are in good condition with minor wear: some fur loss, a small hole on the back of one heel, some blemishes to the velvet, and shattering in the ribbon. The most delicate part of them is the ribbon, which is easily replaceable if needed in the future.
They are quite wearable still (with care, of course) and would work for a size 7. 5-8 worn without shoes underneath. The faux fleece lining is cozy, comfy, and warm! They measure 10 3/4" long, 3 1/8" wide, and 11" tall.
