Fashionable ladies' shoes in the Victorian era were pointed, high and often impractical. Standard shoe sizes were not introduced until 1885, and unless the buyer was wealthy enough to have their shoes made specifically for them, they very often did not fit properly. This caused many problems for the feet of men and women alike - something borne out by the large volume of advertisements for corn remedies in the Evanion collection.
