I was under the impression that people in the 1600's wore boots? Can I ask therefore who wore shoes?

Sigh, don't even think you are being humorous, are you? Think you have watched too many episodes of Musketeers and Dogtanian.
Everyone wore shoes at some point, only people who wore boots were those riding horses or those who wanted to make a fashion statement..

There is also the salient point that the shoes pictured are for a lady.
