I’m a sucker for a good boot. And so apparently was one Mrs. Henry Ford who owned these oh-so-stylish sporting boots that date from around 1890.
These were some of the first shoes made specifically to facilitate women’s participation in athletic activity. They’ve got a good sturdy heel, are plenty adjustable with laces and buckles, and they have scored soles to provide some extra traction.
Mrs. Ford would have been sporting in style, if you ask me.
If you’re interested, by the way, these shoes are for sale for $1,400 at Karen Augusta Antique Lace & Fashion.
