18th Century Buckle Shoes Rough Side Out leather


  • Details
    18th Century buckle shoes **leather with rough side out** Black only. Plain buckles included.

    Buckles are not attached, message me for a direction sheet on how to do so.

    Made with leather soles and metal heel plate to prevent wear and tear. These are softer than smooth leather shoes and easier to mold to your foot. Historically accurate for reenactors.

    Here is some history from Cordwainers & Cobblers, Shoemakers in Colonial America
    March 8, 2016 by Harry Schenawolf "Leather was brought to desired thickness by ‘curing,’ or scraping over a wooden beam. Unlined shoes would be made with the smooth side inside to take the place of a lining. The rough outside leather was dressed with a mixture of soot, lard, bear grease, and beeswax"

    Adding hobnails helps improve traction! You can find them on Amazon.
