The display of wealth through fashionable clothes was also seen on the feet in the eighteenth century. Both men and women of wealth wore fancy shoes that signaled their status, a trend that died out by the end of the century.
Women wore high-heeled shoes made of colorful silk or delicate leather, sometimes decorated with gold and silver lace and braid. Although women wore heavily decorated silk dresses, their shoes were rarely made from matching material; to do so would be much too expensive. Some shoes were laced, but most had decorative buckles. The toes of women's shoes were pointed or slightly rounded. These elaborate women's shoes were replaced at the end of the century, however, with much simpler styles, including the especially popular slipper.
Our Colonial period slippers, will allow this simple style and the ankles to be much admired as was, the tradition in the late 18th Century.
Includes: Man made pleather shoes with a 2 3/4" kitten heel, Maryjane style pump w/ peekaboo lace front & cutout details.

To remove stains:
Make a soap and warm water solution using a mild liquid detergent. Wipe the fabric gently with a non-abrasive sponge, until all the visible dirt is removed.
Remove tough stains by spraying with an alcohol-based all-purpose cleaner, like Formula 409. It will have a better chance of removing stains other than food and dirt.
Rinse the faux leather thoroughly using warm water and a clean, non-soapy sponge. Make sure to get in the crevices of faux leather so that soap suds or dirt do not get lodged in small cracks or folds.
Wipe the surface dry with a lint-free towel.
