Antique Pair of Barrette Sandal Boots blue leather antique  Victorian Sandal Boots %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
A most unusual and rare pair of 19th Century Victorian sandal boots, or Barrettes, which date from the 1870s. They are made of dark blue leather, bound with silk of a lighter blue and fastening with three spherical metal buttons into buttonholes from each side. At the top of the boot there is a flap which fastens with a hook and eye and conceals the top button.
The sandals are lined with cream kid, the sole is leather and the heels are of a stacked leather type.
The sandals have seen quite a bit of wear. There is a little scuffing of the leather and the silk binding has worn away in some places, and one of the buttons is held in place with fine wire, but in view of their age and amount of use, they are in good condition.

In their time these barrettes must have been the height of fashion, even a little daring, and were worn to show off coloured stockings, perhaps in a sporty environment or at the beach.

They would make a most unusual addition to a collection.
