In 1599, Abbas I sent the first Persian diplomatic mission to Europe and the interest in all things Persian spread. The Persian style shoes were happily adopted by the European aristocrats. In the early Baroque period in Europe was the beginning of modern footwear. Fashions and materials differed between social classes. Commoners wore heavy black leather heels but the aristocrats' shoes were crafted out of wood.
Both women and men wore heals. During the reign of King Louis XIV, only those who wore red colored heels would be granted access to his court. Louis XIV always had his heels and soles dyed red. When the fashion of heels spread to the lower ranks of society, aristocrats increased the height of their shoes. This was the beginning of high heel shoes.The Limoges Lily of the Valley Ladybug Shoe Box with Shoes. Is painted with white lilies of the valley, ladybug accents with a bow clasp.
