7. Yes, this certainly looks like the precursor to today's women's pumps.

The "lotus shoes" and today's women's high heels are equally estranged from the actual natural shape of a woman's foot. Although not as extreme as footbinding, wearing high heels does deform a women's foot, causes pain and debilitates the woman.
