Footwear Plate 40.

The fitting of shoes with either short or pointed toes is outlined in Fig. 1.

In Fig. 2 a back view is given showing the sole of one foot, the other standing. The inside of the shoe must fit the foot whatever the outer shape may be.

To place the feet in the stocking (as Fig. 3) will give the student the best idea of the outline of the foot, and so of fitting the shoes, after allowing for the right slope of the arch of the foot for high or low heels.

A strong walking shoe is shown in Fig. 4, in the mode of 1927, suitable for depicting with a fairly heavy type of garment. The brogue and laced shoe appears well with heavy tweed costumes and coats, giving a look of sports wear.

A more delicate-looking shoe is shown in Fig. 5, representing the pointed toe. This could be worn with the ordinary town walking garment.

The flexed legs of Fig. 6 show strapless shoes. These can be used for dressy afternoon wear.

In Fig. 7 are shown high-laced boots that were in vogue in the year 1918. The upper part is composed of figured brocade and the toe-caps of patent leather.

The dancing shoes in Fig. 8 must fit well and snugly to the feet, and the strapping arranged in a natural manner.

Many types of shoes can be used for the resting feet (Fig. 9), but they must have a look of ease. They can
