Eighteenth Century Ladies Tongue and Tie Leather Shoes (SP1800)Sold Out
As every costume department knows, finding decent footwear is always the most difficult problem to solve. Do they look right? Are they comfortable? Can they run in them? Do the soles slip? Do the heels fall off? Can we get very a good size range? Can we afford them? On it goes.
To address these familiar anxieties we have comissioned ladies period shoes specially from Portugal. They are the result of much debate and endless rounds of sampling but finally we are delighted to have them in stock.
The 2" high heel has been specially carved to a proper period shape usually known as a Louis heel.
Available in fine black leather. These shoes are made on a modern last and have memory foam insoles so are fantastically comfortable.
The C18th shoes are a delightfully dainty shape and can be worn with the tie underneath which works for earlier periods.
The soles are non slip. Spare ribbon included.
Available in European sizes 36-42.
