I have to admit, when I first saw the high strap boots that are featured as part of Samantha’s Frilly Frock outfit I could not decide if I liked them or not. They have become a point of fascination and I just had to go look for myself how historically accurate they are.

American Girl Samantha's High Strap Boots

Right on the money for her time period!! Now I am going to have to order them. 

In the photo above we have Samantha’s high strap boots and then:

Robin’s Egg Blue Victorian High Boots

Victorian High Top 4 Button Children’s Boots

And if you are wondering if the shiny light purple and pearl buttons would have been used… based on all the photos I have been looking at – it is very possible. Afterall, Robin’s Egg Blue is not exactly a common shoe color either.

What do you think? Love them or leave them?
