Innovations in the elasticity of rubber after the discovery of vulcanization in 1839 led to the development of elastic stitching, which, when woven into the fabric, could be used as a gusset for short boots. Such is the case with these boots. This stretchy boot was very popular because it greatly improved comfort. In the United States, these boots became known as "congress" boots. In Europe, they later became known as "Garibaldi" after the Italian statesman who unified Italy in the 1860s.
These cute children's boots are made of petrol colored fabric. Leather sole, small heels made of wood. Small holes in the fabric. Boots of this type have almost not survived, children's boots certainly not. They were applied and then discarded. The decoration is not included.
