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.

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. 

We placed two sturdy pull tabs inside each boot.  If you do not have boot hooks, It’s easy enough to carry a couple of leather laces in your pocket. Run a leather lace or sturdy cord through each tab and use them to pull the boot upward. 

The “pass line” where your foot is going through the curve is the tightest part of the boot but a shake of talcum powder and a pair of sturdy leather laces will get the boot on. 

Paul Revere’s boot has a natural color cuff of heavy, supple glove leather.  When the boot comes off the bench, the cuff is turned all the way down.  There is plenty of leather cuff for you to easily roll up the cuff to whatever height you desire.

The object is to avoid any gap below your breeches or any show of breeches cuff or stocking.  The functional cuff also may be turned up to protect a rider’s knees and prevent the entrance of rainwater, etc.

“By 1727 the riding bootleg had become softer and closer-fitting……(the) jockey in close fitting boots with brown tops…..the top was turned down below the knee for greater mobility, showing the brown lining.  It was soon adapted for fashionable wear.  .. … These are the boots with brown top featured in caricatures of John Bull, ……The top boots were worn by Thomas Jefferson, now in the Smithsonian are of this type. Quotes from June Swann’s “Shoes”    ISBN 0 7134 09428

Full and half sizes 5EE to 15EE.  Ladies should take 1 1/2 size smaller.

    These are really nice !!

    I originally ordered the all-black stovepipe boots, but upon receiving them I saw immediately the top was much too wide to wear with breeches.
    They were more designed for tucking trousers down into the top.
    I called and asked if I could return them and upgrade to the Revere boots. The lady was quite nice and accommodated my request.
    I got these boots within five days and wore them to an event that very day.. I took cushioned insoles out of my buckle shoes, put them in and
    wore these boots all day without any problems. Thank you Fugawee for being so prompt and putting out such a fine boot..
