Evening Shoes: ca. 1875-1885, French, silk, glass. "The ankle-strap or ankle-tie shoe, as illustrated by this pair of evening shoes, was worn primarily in the late 1870s and 1880s. Slippers with comparatively high backs were a trend from the 1870s, and it seems that the feature of the peaked or raised quarter may have led naturally to the ankle-tie style. Although novel and fashionable at the time, the style does not appear to have been very widely worn."
