Do you know when the first boot was created? Some people claim that the very first lady’s boot was when Queen Victoria of England wanted a new footwear item in 1840. This, however, seems a bit off when you consider that in some museums there are examples of Chinese, Ancient Greek and Egyptian boots from 900 BCE. Do they really think females in these countries needn’t walk in mud and work on the fields as well?
Anyway, the history of boots has definitely been influenced greatly by 19th century England and this very Queen Victoria, just like everything else. The first highly feminized pair of boots was in fact created for the feet of the British governor for her wedding that happened on February 10, 1840.
Since then, this specific item in the world of fashion has grown in numbers according to people’s tastes and needs. However, the Victorian-style boots are still alive and ‘kicking’ when it comes to the market. This is because of the specific form of the boot and the gentle heel – a lovely ensemble they create as a subtly presented unison in every aspect of the models. The Queen’s incredibly noticeable taste is incorporated with her need of comfort and elevated class.
