Only one overshoe of the pair survives. Overshoes of this type were known as 'promenade' or 'carriage' clogs. The leather straps and square toe cap would have fitted over a woman's shoe or boot, protecting the fragile silks and kid leathers from dirt and damp. As the sole was made of cork, the carriage clog would have been light to wear.
