Mary Jane (shoe)
Mary Jane is an American term (formerly trademarked) for a kind of strap shoe or sandal that typically has low heels, broad and rounded closed toes, and a single-buckle strap across the instep and/or around the ankle. They are often made of black patent leather, although some current incarnations can be in a wide array of colors and are also made of canvas or suede.

Traditionally Mary Janes are a variety of shoe worn mainly by young girls, but historically have been worn by boys as well. In modern times they are worn by women of all ages, however, while Mary Janes may be considered formal for girls, they are considered informal when worn by women.
