Vicky's Vintage Wedding Shoes

Queen Victoria wore these minuscule mules on her wedding day in 1840.

She wore a size 3! The woman whose name defines an age was only 5 feet tall and wore no nonsense shoes. Those leather soles are as flat a flounder. This Queen certainly wasn't a 'heel'.

These practical ribbon trimmed slippers were made by Gundry and Sons in London. This is the insole of the shoe. Was it covered by an odor eater on Victoria's big day?
