    Clarke's Commentary on Song of Solomon 7:1

    How beautiful are thy feet with shoes - "How graceful is thy walking." In the sixth chapter the bridegroom praises the Shulamite, as we might express it, from head to foot. Here he begins a new description, taking her from foot to head.

    The shoes, sandals, or slippers of the Eastern ladies are most beautifully formed, and richly embroidered. The majestic walk of a beautiful woman in such shoes is peculiarly grand. And to show that such a walk is intended, he calls her a prince's daughter.

    The joints of thy thighs - Must refer to the ornaments on the beautiful drawers, which are in general use among ladies of quality in most parts of the East.

    Barnes' Notes on Song of Solomon 7:1

    Thy feet with shoes - Or, thy steps in the sandals: the bride's feet are seen in motion in the dance. "Joints" might be rendered circling movements.

    Prince's daughter - Or, daughter of a noble; the bride is of honorable though not of kingly birth.

    Like jewels - The image suggested is that of large well-formed pearls or other jewels skillfully strung or linked together.

    Wesley's Notes on Song of Solomon 7:1

    7:1 Shoes - Were anciently evidences of a free and comfortable state, whereas slaves and mourners used to go bare - foot.
