Woman or girl's patten with wooden sole and two black leather straps with holes for ties across the feet. This patten has an undulating curved metal ring under the sole to raise the patten above ground. The toe is pointed and reinforced with metal from the patten ring. This patten has no heel but has a heel socket which measures 2.8 cm. It has a straight sole so it could be worn outdoors. The leather straps are nailed on with three nails and are reinforced. There is a wavy iron ring nailed on at the forepart and two nails at the heel.
