I HAVE HAD THESE PAIR OF SHOES FOR ALMOST A YEAR TRYING TO FIND SOME INFORMATION ON THEM. WOULD BE VERY HAPPY IF SOMEONE CAN TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT THEM, AGE OF THEM, WHERE THEY ARE FROM, ETC...... THE SIZE OF THESE KIDS SHOES ARE 5 1/4" LONG, TOP SIDE IN BACK TO BOTTOM ABOVE THE HEEL IS 1 3/4" AND THE HEEL ITSELF IS 1/2". THE WIDTH IS 2". SOME TYPE OF NAILS HOLDING THE LEATHER TO THE WOOD GOING AROUND THE SHOES. FROM WHAT I HAVE FOUND OUT SO FAR THERE WAS NO LEFT OR RIGHT IN THE 1600'S AND THESE SHOES HAVE NO LEFT OR RIGHT, YOU CAN SEE THAT WHO EVER THE KID WAS THAT HAD AND WORN THEM HAD FORM THE LEATHER PART OF THE SHOES TO THEIR FEET OVER A PERIOD OF TIME. WHAT RESEARCH THAT I HAVE DONE I HAVE NOT FOUND ANY SHOES THAT EVEN LOOK OR COMPARE TO THESE. AROUND THE BELT BUCKLES LOOKS LIKE STAR DESIGNS BUT THEY ARE NOT. ONE PIECE OF THE BELT BUCKLE ON ONE SHOE IS MISSING. OTHERWISE THESE SHOES ARE IN GREAT SHAPE FOR THE AGE. THE LEATHER ON THESE SHOES ARE NOT SOFT, VERY HARD FROM THE AGE AND FROM BEING PACKED AWAY. THE SHOES LOOK ALOT BETTER THAN THE PHOTOS THAT YOU SEE, NOT A GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER. SO I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION I CAN GET ABOUT THESE SHOES. THANKS, BRENDA

    This is a pair of Lancashire clogs. This type of low cost footwear was worn until the middle of the 20th century in parts of Northern England. There are many extant children's sized examples and it is my personal feeling that these small examples were created as keepsake remembrances of home.
