Artillery Boot 1861, short boot Smooth side out lined boot.
Artillery boot 1861, or sometimes called the Short Boot or Engineer Boot. The mid-calf height of the boot changes in proportion to the size. The boot is leather lined. The original is on the right in the image.
Historic Stovepipe Boot, black smooth side out
The Stovepipe is close to all around or common boot. It comes high on the leg, almost to the knee. The leg is wider so the trousers can be tucked in them. It is a two piece pattern with 1 1/4″ stacked heel. It has inside pull tabs to make it easier to pull on.
