Colonial men’s and women’s styles for immediate shipment.
Revere Boot, turn down cuff
The Revere boot is built upon a squarish antique last. It has a rounded shank that fits a stirrup well. The shank is held in place by pegs but the rest of the sole is lock-stitched. The Revere boot has a steam-molded front piece and a full calfskin lining. The exterior is polished black calfskin.
The boot is almost a straight last but indeed it is a left/right. This will make it more comfortable for walking. Please mark somewhere inside which is for the right foot. My husband had not done this and about mid-day he wondered why his feet didn’t feel right. Sure enough, he had put them on the wrong way. After that all was good. So we suggest that you mark the inside for each foot.
Debbie, Colonial buckle shoe
Debbie is made of supple leather with a moderate 1-3/4″ squash heel. It has a steel shank for strength. This shoe is made for those that need a roomier toe, and a wider shoe. It is a lined shoe and can be worn with a buckle or ties. This is a look a like for the Leslie, but in women’s sizing.
Mules (slippers) 18th and 19th Century
The Mule is a simple, comfy and beautiful footwear that comes down thru the ages . Easy to slip on and with a leather sole so it can go from the bedroom to outside. It has a moderate heel and decorative trim across the arch.
