The Tramecksans, or High Heel Wearers, represented the English Tories. The Slamecksans, or Low Heel Wearers, were the Whigs.

High and Low are in reference to the fact that though both Tories and Whigs were Anglicans - members of the Church of England - the Tories tended to be High Church, or more nearly Catholic, and the Whigs tended to be Low Church, or more liberally Protestant.
