baby boots







I'm not sure where these baby boots came from but they were in my mother's things.  I tried to find some information on them but only found newer shoes from the 50's.  I know they were made in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.



Look at those tiny white buttons.  Imagine trying to button these on an active toddler.


Sweet vamp detail.

The maker's sticker is still inside.

Adorable!



I wonder how many feet toddled around in these little shoes.
I wonder where they took them in the house or outdoors.
I wonder if I wore them.
{I don't think so}






I love these little shoes.  I think they are so sweet.

Does anyone know what generation might have worn them?

I'd really like to know.

Have a great day and stay warm!

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. They look expensive. The cunningest shoes I've ever seen, too. Hope that you'll be displaying them as they shouldn't be shut up in a box somewhere unenjoyed. Hope that you find out!

  2. Those are so darling and a baby would look so cute in them. Sorry I can't help you.

  3. What sweet shoes. When you think of the era of the depression, these must have been quite something and the baby would have been very well-dressed.

  4. I know that the ones we wore had a slicker harder sole...those are adorable, and they look expensive. Ours had laces.

  5. It loos like a European shoe like in the 30's or 40's.

    They are beautiful.

  6. Pamela---they are cute--is it possible that your mom wore them as a child?

  7. If they came from Quebec you can be sure they are European in styling. They are adorable. Are you sure you would not have worn them? Valerie

  8. So sweet. Actually, I had a pair for my daughter (21year old now) that were designed here in Québec and look like a modern version of that. Strange, eh?

  13. It does seem like they are older than the 50s though even my kids' baby shoes were hightopped, but tied. I will have to look at some old photos of my mom and see if I see such shoes there. They are very sweet! At first glance I thought you had them outside in the snow!

  14. Those are adorable! But I think I would prefer velcro for a fastener.

  16. I tried to find them as well, Pam...no luck :o(
    They look like they could be from the early '20's to me...
    Such a treasure to have these...if only they could talk...
    Imagine the stories they could tell...
    Beautiful...

    Enjoy your evening...
    Cheers!

  19. Hi Again PAm - yes unfortunately you do need to re-subscribe to my blog. When I shifted to Squarespace6 my RSS feed changed even though my blog url didn't. A little odd. But anyway, if you pop over and click the RSS feed in the URL or the Subscribe link the navigation bar you should be fixed. Thanks!

  20. that's "the subscribe link on the navigation bar" :)

  22. Exquisite little boots, Pam. Like Vee I hope you can put them in a display case. I’m also unable to help you with a time frame. Have a toasty warm weekend.

  23. They are so sweet. Too bad there wasn't a note with them to say why your mother kept them!

  27. I imagine you would need a button hook to button them -- maybe the early 1900s? Very cute Pamela!
