In the Fall of 1878 in New York, Frank OíNeil was arrested for trying on a brand new pair of Congress Gaiters, then waltzing out of the store at 24 Hudson Street without making payment. The police caught him shortly thereafter, ensuring his place in history.

Youíre sure to find these boots irresistible as well, perfect for all of your fancy footwear occasions. This is a timeless style, appropriate for mid- to late- nineteenth century onward.

Crafted with leather uppers, our slip-on menís boot features authentic elastic side-gussets and durable 1 inch non-skid heel. The boot shaft measures 4.25 inches tall from the sole of the foot (not including the heel) to the top of the boot.

Imported. Available in menís whole sizes only, 8-13.

Dress up your boots with a pair of our spats here.

Congress Gaiters
These pair of shoes look great. The toe is pointer than I expected but the shoes are a great fit. These shoes would go great with my regular suits as well as my Old West gambler costume. Thanks!

Great shoes
Bought these for a costume party. Ended up wearing them out for an evening before the party. Most comfortable shoes I own! High quality, great fit. I usually wear an 11.5, twelves fit great.

Nice, but...
The Gaiters are well made, supple leather, sizing is right on. The only comment I have is that the toe is very long and looks a little out of proportion to the foot. They are comfortable, though. Not disappointed with them or my purchase.

Slick and easy to put on
I want to save these for stage use (I'm a Mark Twain on the lecture tour monologist), but I would be happy to wear them even "as myself" - I like the look, and they are comfortable enough for normal usage.

Great shoe!
This doesn't happen very often in my internet shopping experience but it did this time. Buying shoes without trying them on is extremely iffy at best. But these fit perfect! I'm a size 12 and the Congress Gaiters fit just right. No break-in period at all. Oh, and they look good too!
