Product Description

All-leather shoe with elastic sides appropriate for the time period 1861-1880.

Named for the famous Confederate spy and patriot, Rose Greenhow, a dedicated lady who made her way over the uncertain ground between the Federal and Confederate lines. Designed to be comfortable for outdoor wear, it is a fine shoe for the active lady, whether period-correct event watcher, nurse or sweetheart. It has a plain, tapered squared toe and a vamp much like a fine English riding boot.

In "Shoes"(1982, pg. 48), June Swann, former Keeper of the Shoe Collection at Northampton Museum, shows an unfinished lady's shoe that was made by Spekes Hall and shown at the Great Exhibition in 1861. Elastic-side shoes remained in fashion until the 1880's.
