Worn during the period by civilians as a lightweight or sport shoe, these type of shoe also gained popularity during the Civil War as a "camp" shoe. Our reproductions are made from 100% cotton canvas and European top grain leather. Our shoes also feature a more expensive and long lasting hand pegged sole, which is an upgrade when compared to many reproductions being offered today. Our shoes also feature metal shoelace eyelets and leather cord strings. A great shoe handmade to last a long time!
