Description

If you could only choose one boot for the broadest period of historic dress, the Larkspurs should be it! This faithful reproduction wool and leather bootie is accurate for a staggering 130+ years, from c. 1810 all the way through the 1930s.

Advertised as warm and comfortable, practical, and even "healthy and sanitary," advertisements for these wool felt and leather boots were a standard in catalogs from the 1890s well into the 1930s. The style itself is significantly older, shown in illustrations throughout the Victorian period and before.

These adorable and versatile booties have a 0.75 in / 2 cm common sense heel with a safety rubber heel lift. The toes are lightly structure, softly squared. The boots are lined in wool felt to match the upper, with leather facings for durability, and a leather insole. The Larkspurs are wonderfully comfortable, warm, and extremely practical.

WONDERFUL COZY AND SO BEAUTIFUL

Ohh, I absolutely love my larkspurs. These boots fit a bit tight in the front of my feet when I put them on the first time, but they adapted very fast to my feet as soon as the leather was warmed by the body warmth. Now they fit like a glove and are wonderfully comfy. The woolly lining makes the boots warm and cozy, which makes them excellent winter boots as long as you don’t splash through the rain. I wear them with my jeans and normal everyday clothes as well as with historical costumes. Wonderful eyecatchers which I can walk in a long day.

Nice but a bit too small

Unlike many other comments, these aren't the most comfortable shoes I own. I took size 8 (my NB sneakers in 8 are a bit too big for me) and they are long enough, but not wide, so my big toe hurts if I keep them the whole day. I added cushion for the heel and it was much needed. Otherwise they're beautiful and seems warm. I was in an event yesterday with different wars reenactors and both Napoleonic and First Wold War reenactors complimented my shoes, so I'm happy with them despite the pain. Next time I'll take shoes in the wider option or a half-size bigger.

Wonderful shoes

These are the most beautiful shoes I have ever had.
Same as the pictures. Incredibly comfortable. They look and feel incredible.
I'm a 40 EU and a 9.5 was perfect fit.
