Shoe fastened by a ribbon tie

18th century regency shoe from the Georgian Era.

PLATE XI.

THIS shoe is fastened by a ribbon tie, instead of the overlapping straps with ornamental buckle. It is made of plain black satin, with the silk binding that is usual at the present day. The heel is neatly shaped, and not of such extravagant height as that of other shoes of a corresponding date, probably about the middle or end of the last century ; toe pointed.
