I am no expert and do not claim to be. I will and have disclosed all I know about the item here. If you need more pics or have questions I will do my best to answer them promptly.
There may be some loose stitching or stray thread in embroidery, Colors are vibrant, there is some discoloration along bottom side and misshapen at the top of one of the shoes. 
I am unsure of the exact age of the shoes. 
I have been advised by a collector of such items that these are 19th Century, and were worn very gently, and were bedroom / sleeping shoes, with some sole repair at sometime. 
The shoes have been hand stitched by a widowed slave, hence the Widow Stitch.   
Foot binding went out of favor in the early 1900s around 1912, even so the acts were carried on for several years after that time. 
May have other wear due to shelf, storage, age and or use. 
See pics for details.
