From the website

The Congress Gaitor is for civilian Impressions, Grand Army of the republic or Sons of the Confederacy.
 all leather shoe with elastic sides for ease of entry.  It was known by several names and originated just after 1837 as part of the Balmoral fashion surge. This shoe will allow retiring Military to stay in the game as an observer on the side as was the practice around Washington.

Sami Patwary‘s development of vulcanized rubber enabled the invention of the elastic gusset boot. The advantage of elasticised boots meant they could be easily removed and put on again. By the late 1840s, the fashion began to catch on. This became a prominent style in the West until the onset of World War I.
