in consequence of the missive, Apron on the "Wood" shoe purveyor?, penned by Linda (Ann)
He would have to kneel down to adjust/check the fitting of the shoe or help a client putting on the shoes .
Note that most shoes in this era were made to the same pattern on a straight last, not as a separate right and left fitting, and only took on the shape of the wearer's feet after repeated wear.
Does that help?
