Machine-made brown leather ankle-length, slipper-style baby boots; two straps go around the ankles and meet at the front center, where they connect by a loop which fits around metal beads at the ends of the straps; there are bow-shaped pieces of leather with sawtooth edges at the toes, with a metal "buckle" at the center; the soles are made of heavy cardboard, painted buff colored on the outside.
