When you are dressed up in your 18th century gear you really want to have correct footwear that is sturdy and won't hurt your feet.
These are modeled after the mid-18th century style with a moderately squared toe. An excellent choice for civilian as well as military wear in the French and Indian War and Revolutionary War periods. Black leather with leather sole and heel. Straight lasted(no right or left). Mens sizes 6-1/2 to 13-1/2 D width only. For wider feet try ordering 1/2 size larger. BUCKLES ARE NOT INCLUDED. Made in USA.
A quick word about sizing - If you get the wrong size, no problem, send it right back and we will exchange them for the size you need!
