Slippers  1862-1865  The Los Angeles County Museum of Art  In the 1860s, heeled shoes became the norm for going outside and attending social events, replacing the heelless slippers of the pervious decades.  At home, women replaced their heeled shoes with slippers like these, which could be as fancy as their reglar shoes, but were much more comfortable.

Queen Victoria's Slippers: ca. 1840-1848, English, satin. "These dainty cream slippers were made for Queen Victoria during the 1840s by boot and shoemakers Gundry and Son...Victoria had nine-inch feet, approximately a size 3–3.5 in today’s sizes...They have small leather soles and no heel as was common for the time... As it was considered inappropriate to show one’s feet women squeezed into small shoes to appear more delicate..."

Cream silk evening slippers, European, 1805-1815. Simple but elegant slippers typify the styles around 1810, as this pair in cream silk demonstrates. The extremely short vamp and rounded toe are particularly notable characteristics of this date. The heel was becoming vestigial in the first quarter of the century, and although low by modern standards, the variety seen here was one of the higher types produced at the time.
