I recall the picture. I had always thought they were pattens. They seemed too flimsy to be able to walk in them, but they might work with small piked shoes underneath. But then why on earth is this woman wearing pattens without shoes?? (All I can think of is that they belong to the love that she is casting the spell on, but that is a stretch of the imagination!)
THe other thing I can think of, which relates to the thread about period snarking and the other post in this thread who mentioned foreign people (muslims and egyptians I think) of the time having sandals. Witches were weird outcasts of society, so were muslims and egyptians.
Need to look at the picture again.
