Judging by the large number of surviving examples, these shoes represent some of the most widely worn ones of the time. We developed these last directly from original examples and then extrapolated them to modern feet. They feature the classic tapered toe of the 1860’s profile. The bodies are 100% silk, lined in cotton drill. Buttonholes are hand done. Soles are attached by hand, all stitches concealed in the channel cut along the edge of the sole. Made in size 11.

We had started this project with the intention of gradually adding it to the line, and it wasn’t until a customer commisioned us to make them, that we kicked the project into high gear. This particular shoe has already been offered by a competing company, and we would not have undertaken the project, if we could not offer a different interpretation of the artifact. Upon examination, we found that the tape was actually blue and white, and not black as already on the marketplace. Moreover, the most important detail was the the hobnails were not commercial swedged nails, but actually hand cut nails with an uneven top. We have duplicated these details in our interpretation for this Confederate issue shoe. The original shoe is among artifacts in the New York State Military Museum. We would like to thank them for their patience and continued help in bringing this reproduction to fruition.
