Civil War Shoes & Boots

We offer the finest of shoes available today.

All shoes are made to the original specifications on square toe lasts. We use only top grade leather. The soles are wooden pegged. The shoe has a rigid heel support and hickory shank for arch support. All shoes are stretched. We do not use staples, cardboard, etc. in making our shoes as these items tend to decrease the life of the product.

Our shoe size range is men's size 6 to 16 1/2 EEE, and ladies' sizes 5 1/2 - 10. We can make larger or smaller sizes by special order. The civilian pattern brogan is basically the same as the military but with the leather smooth side out. This is also worn as a military dress shoe for parades, balls, etc.

Shoe & Boot GUARANTEE: We warranty our shoes & boots against defects in materials or workmanship for a period of one year. If there is a problem we will repair or replace the shoes or boots at our OPTION. Excessive wear or abuse voids this warranty.

Be sure to read about properly caring for your leather shoes and boots if they get wet.

The standard model of brogan worn by a soldier was the Model 1851 Jefferson, a square-toed model with four eyelets and leather laces. Brogans were interchangeable with the left or right foot, supposedly allowing for even wear on the boots.

HeelPlate_SM.jpg
$7.50

Heel plates helped prevent the infantry man's heel leather from wearing out due to the amount of marching.

These heel plates are patterned from the originals found at the Corinth Mississippi Battlefield. The heel plates are made of high quality steel, with counter sunk holes and are sold in pairs. 6 flat head, slotted, screws are included and are correct for the period.

Installation is simple. Position the heel plate over the heel, mark the 3 holes using a pencil, drill a hole narrower and shorter than the screw. Install screws using a screwdriver.

We do not install heel plates on boots and shoes. Heel plates are not recommended for those who wear their boots and shoes mainly inside. If you have heel plates and plan to attend an indoor event, cover your heel plates with duct tape to prevent both slipping and marring the floors.
