A pair of very well worn brown leather shoes. The right foot still has a brown cloth lace, while the lace is missing on the left. The shoes have a slight heel with numerous nails protruding from the bottom due to extensive wear.

These shoes were worn by Leona Sorenson on her honeymoon 1944. On the bottom of this shoe, someone (Leona?) has written "Honey Moon. July 15- to Aug 11, Trip from Sioux Lookout to Fisher Lake by canoe, 600 miles, 78 Portages, 1944"
