White canvas beach shoes with almond-shaped peep toes and low-heels. A matching white canvas strap cuts across the instep with elastic to secure the shoe to the foot. The low heel is created with four layers of canvas wedges secured to a soft leather sole. The insoles are cardboard liners.

Worn and donated by Ruth Holmes Gadsden.
