According to Dr. David C. Ko, a medical doctor and collector of Chinese footbinding shoes, these are a nice example of authentic footbinding shoes. The embroidering is very good and the toe is very narrow. The shoes appear to have never been worn. Based on the style, Ko believes they are from Anwei.
