Samantha's shoes are patent leather Mary Janes. The ones I have from 2004 snap closed. They are white inside. These shoes are an improvement over her Meet shoes but aren't terribly easy to get on. Her socks are lacy white socks which also come with her tea dress, her play dress and her birthday dress. They are pretty, but they snag easily and her short skirts look funny with the socks. They don't seem very proper for a girl in her time living with someone like GrandMary. The tights are not as thick as the ones that come with her dresses and are small and need to REALLY stretch out before putting on Samantha.

Samantha’s Shoes & Socks Item# D8184 $15
"To complete her outfit, Samantha puts on this pair of white socks, black patent-leather shoes with straps that snap closed, and two pairs of stockings, one in black and one in white."
Although this description is not accurate as Samantha's shoes now come with velcro closure just like Molly's. I was disappointed in the quality of the shoes for this reason. The shoes are just like the ones from Molly's Shoes and Socks set except they are 1/8" longer.
The socks are just like qnpoohbear said, remakes of the ones that come with her outfits. I guess this set would be nice if you were missing her stockings, etc, and needed replacements.
I bought this set because I was missings stocking for Samantha and wanted an upgrade from the plastic mary janes of fail. This set has fufilled this purpose. I have no aesthetic problems with any of the items. The velcro on the shoes can get caught on the stockings if you're not very careful, I wish they'd have kept the snaps. The stockings are a bit hard to get over my Samantha's butt, but this might be because she's PM. They get easier to use with time, I think they might be stretching out. Grade: B.
