These fine black leather men's shoes show the further progression of latcheted shoes, here turned into very elegant dress slippers for dinner or dancing. Dated 1810-29, they foreshadow the long lines and square toes that shoes would achieve in the 1830s. This pair ties with silk ribbons, but I have seen examples that fasten with simpler cord.

1840s British Boots at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "Top boots ended just below the knee. They are so called because the top was turned down to reveal a softer or lighter coloured leather, allowing greater mobility when riding and walking. They had leather or string loops on the inside to help with pulling them on. Top boots came into fashion during the 18th century."
