      The Tanki Yoriaku (written about 1735) has an entry for them:
      "Kegutsu and momi-tabi are worn only for interviews with noblemen, as
      ordinary socks with sandals or bare feet are very vulgar"

      A Gakken books I have (ISBN4-05-602415-4) (I think the title is 118
      Sengoku Warlords) shows portraiture of several daimyou wearing
      kegutsu. To name them: Nobunao Nanbu, Kagetsunne Katakura, Yoshinobu
      Satake, Douan Ohta, Terumasa Ikeda, Yasumasa Sakakibara. The portraits
      do not appear modern, but I cannot provide firm dates.
