Boots and Shoes, General Information

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 26-Apr-2017 21:25:04 EDT

    Our Reproduction boots and shoes are made from top grain leather with the rough side out (unless otherwise specified) for greater durability. Styles include shoes and boots from the late 1700's through the 1800's and into the 1900s.

    Some of the shoes and, such as the Stacy Adams and Oak Tree Farms, are NOT reproduction. They are what could be call retro, as they are modern made shoes that look like those of the earlier period. In most cases the differenced is minor.


Civil War Brogans/Jefferson Bootee, U.S. Contract

U.S. and C.S. as well as Civilian Dress or Work

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 26-Apr-2017 21:25:04 EDT

American Civil War / Civil War shoes / brogans,  U.S. Contract
    Civil War Contract bootees are available in smooth top grain or rough flesh-out. The leather is staked until pliable before cutting out the pieces for the uppers. Most Civil War bootees were issued in smooth leather (right) but rough-out (left) seems to have taken over among re-enactors. These Contract Bootee have four lace holes and are available in sizes from 5E to 15EEE in full and half sizes. Smooth or rough. Because of a glitch in naming the widths of our very first Bootees, our E width is more like a standard D. Be sure to allow plenty of room if you wear heavy socks. Sewn-On Soles.

    According to Quartermaster records, most shoes and boots purchased had sewn soles. The pegged sole booties were purchased for $1.25 and $1.30 per pair as opposed to the average of about $1.90 for sewn soles, but the sewn soles were preferred.

    These ship from Florida. Normal delivery time is 5 to 10 days, IF your size is out of stock they will normally take 2 to 6 weeks.

Civil War Military Style Boots, Light Artillery or Cavalry

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 26-Apr-2017 21:25:04 EDT

American Civil War / Civil War military boots
Repro (size 9½), Original (size 5)
    These boots are made by one of the few boot makers in the world that still produces the antique molded front piece. The master boot maker was sent an unworn original model 1859 Boot made in 1865. The top is about 12" tall when measured from the top of the sole and about 14" tall when measured from the floor.

    This boot was originally called the M1851 Artillery Driver's Boot, as it was originally only issued to Artillery Drivers. During the American Civil War they were also issued to Cavalry troops and continued as the Cavalry Boot until replaced by the Model 1872 Boot, which is a modified version of this boot.

    This boot is an exact copy, with the exception of two changes. The originals had been machine pegged, nine pegs to the inch. Ours is stitched due to the lack of machine that can duplicate the work of an 1860's pegging machine. And for comfort the boot is lined with calfskin leather from top to toe. The leather in our boot is a semi-rough cowhide especially selected after studying the original boot. They will take a shine after a few polishes or will take Lexol for a "field-worn" look. They have a sewn sole with a ridged shank pegged into place. This boot has a comfortable square toe and a tight-gripping heel. There are no side seam welts.

    This boot covers an amazing time period. It is ideal for many impressions from just after 1800 through 1900 and beyond. It is suitable for 1800's miners, teamsters, cattlemen, farmers, Indian Wars, Cowboy Shooters, etc.. Mail order catalogues printed in the 1890s show a wide assortment of prices and qualities in styles just like these.

    According to Quartermaster records, most shoes and boots purchased had sewn soles. The pegged sole booties were purchased for $1.25 and $1.30 per pair as opposed to the average of about $1.90 for sewn soles, but the sewn soles were preferred.

    These ship from Florida. Normal delivery time is 5 to 10 days, IF your size is out of stock they will normally take 2 to 6 weeks.

Stove Pipe Boot / Common Boot 1847-1900

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 26-Apr-2017 21:25:04 EDT

19th Century / Stove Pipe Boot - 1847-1900
    The Stovepipe boot is dated 1847 to 1900. It was first known as a Common Boot. Reaching almost to the knee and wide enough so the trousers could be tucked. We may find that it dates back further but so far that is the best dates I can find. We have had requests for this two piece boot, so we hope it will fill in for the persona you are trying to create.

    As you can tell it is almost a straight last, but it is a left/right. That means that the arch in the boot will make it comfortable for walking as for riding. A steel shank will give a long life to this fine boot.

    The leg has been widened so you can wear these boots outside of your trousers. The leg height is 17", proportioned to the size. It is lined with calf skin, has pull tabs (not mule ears) on the outside of the top. The toe is a moderate square and the heel is 1 1/4". The top of the boot is about 12" from the ground, depending on the size. The leather is black and smooth but not a high shine. It has a full lining.

    This boot should be good for drovers, prospectors and shooters (before the cowboy boots).

    Be sure to have your calf measurement when ordering. The circumference of the boot varies with size and will fit most men.  It can be stretched to accommodate larger calves.

    These ship from Florida. Normal delivery time is 5 to 10 days, IF your size is out of stock they will normally take 2 to 6 weeks.
