These are the shoes of Pius VII in 1808 (above).
Flashforward a little over 200 years, and you have the shoes of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI! Church tradition is so cool. I mean, even the Vati guards have been wearing the same uniform for hundreds of years. They actually kinda remind me of jesters. :P Which probably isn't a good thing seeing that they have to be intimidating.
