An x-ray image of a pair of Victorian ladies dress shoes or boots. These high heel boots made in the 1880's are almost identical to modern design. Of particular importance is the boots have nails in the heels holding together multiple layers of leather. The shoes also have metal shavings placed between the sheets of leather to keep the different layers from sliding. The shoe is fully laced up, but the cotton laces are all but invisible to these low level x-rays.
