Romantic Era Shoes

From the seller:

An early pair of1820-1830 black leather straight shoes. The toes are decorated with a black silk rosette that has a metal center. The shoes are lined with cotton and linen. The shoes are in good condition with normal wear. One of the shoes has scattered nicks in the leather and the other shoes has one small nick at the back heel. (See photos.) Length 10 ½ Width 3 inches.

From Me:

The length of the tongue area (the part of that goes over the foot) is rather long, making me think these are more in the 1830's category than the 1820's.
