Spats, also known as spatterdashes or spatter guards, are a classic outdoor footwear accessory which covered the ankle and instep. Their intended purpose was to protect shoes and socks from mud or rain, but also served as a very stylish feature of dress during the period.
Gaiters are a very similar garment to spats, however they are intended to be worn over the lower trouser leg as well as the shoe. Gaiters are more rugged, with origins in vintage military uniform styles.
Not to be confused with cheap costume spats, our spats are the genuine article, sized to fit with real fabric and metal buttons, durable cotton lining, and a subtle black elastic stirrup to maintain a tidy look. The gaiters are durable leather, with leather straps and stirrups.
All of our spats & gaiters are made exclusively for us to our exacting standards, and you will not find these styles offered by anyone else. We are proud of our line of exclusive spats and gaiter styles, and invite you to contact us if you have any questions.
