Our 18th century/early 19th century shoe is a reproduction of the common man's shoe of the period, with the buckle tongue being trimmed back and lace holes added. This shoe is made with a hand sewn sole and nailed heel. The leather is lighter weight than many reproductions offered today, and closer to original examples that we've viewed. If your size shows as available, your size is in stock and ready for shipment. No half sizes. If your size is not in stock at time of order, a wait of 4-6 weeks may be required.
