These sandals were made for a child. They were found the in stone chip debris on the hillside below the tomb chapel of Senenmut (TT 71). The sandals are similar to others in the collection that are fashioned from papyrus, palm leaf, and halfa grass. The finest of these (10.184.1a, b) were found in the Valley of the Kings tomb of Yuya and Tjuyu (KV 46), the grandparents of Tutankhamun.
A pair of child's sandals made of white leather (36.3.235a, b) were found in the same area. There were several burials found beneath the debris on this hillside, but these two pairs of sandals are not clearly connected with any of the burials found on the hillside of them.
