bittersweet and squeeky
At first these look awesome. You can't even tell that the laces (which are plenty long enough btw) are synthetic. As far as the lining goes, I wish it were leather and not synthetic. I really like that the soles are leather, that kind of authenticity is hard to find. Generally speaking they have been very comfortable for the start ,however going up and down stairs is slightly bothersome. After wearing them 5 times they already have multiple wrinkles and I don't expect them to last more than 2 years. If you need these for "costume" purposes and not everyday wear like me they are perfect. Despite all these issues I would still say that they are a decent inexpensive addition to my wardrobe.

Men's Lace up Boots-Black Leather
I love these boots, so cool, so sharp style wise. But I take 1 star away because the laces were way too short, they were meant for shoes, not boots. I had laces from another pair of boots that I replaced them with, no big whoop!

Excellent
After slipping these boots on, I was surprised that they were very comfortable as far as boots go. I wear a sz 10 and I expected a tight fit. These are nice and roomy, not too stiff and the ankles were not at all as bad as one review implied. Worth the money? Every penny! Beware: As with any good leather soles, these are extremely slippery and need a good asphalt dance at once. Very very happy with Historical Emporium as usual.

Classy, but painful!
These boots look just as nice as they appear in the photo gallery on the website. However, take note of that stiff ankle. The leather there is also just as stiff as it appears in the photos! As soon as I put them on and took a step, I realized I'd sadly have to return them. If I had kept them, I would have worn them to one event, and then I would have never touched them again. If you're used to high ankle dress boots, I imagine you'd be fine. But if you aren't used to it, you're in for a wake-up call! Still, I cannot say enough good things about how classy they look.

Surprising Comfort
Well made, classic style, leather construction, nice shine. Leather soles a little slick until you wear them for a while to scratch up the bottom for traction. I went a size larger since my feet tend to be slightly larger than 10. Glad I did. Figured I'd have to wear an extra thick sock, but they're not loose at all. I've worn them for several hours at a time already and no discomfort at all, nor do I feel they give me inadequate support where it counts on my feet. Very happy with purchase.

Look nice but squeaks
I received the boots in just a few days after I order them,they were packaged very professionally. The boots looked great but the souls were very slick and the function I was going to the sidewalks and roads maybe wet or even have snow on them. I tried the boots on and they squeaked louder than normal leather dress shoes or boots. I returned the boots without any problem and was refunded fully in just a couple of days.

Mens Lace Up Boots - Black Leather
Exactly what I was looking for. I put a scoring blade in my utility knife and lightly cross-hatched the sole to provide just a little more traction. They are great in the garden as the smooth sole does not cake up with loam and they polish up good enough to wear with my tuxedo on formal occasions. The pair weigh less than one of my former work boots.

Comfortable, but weak
I've held off on writing this review for some time, as I hadn't had sufficient experience with them to give a proper accounting. Unfortunately this is the one bad review that I must give, for anything purchased from this store. On putting them on for my third wearing them (once to test the fit and once out to an event) the leather around an eyelet tore and the eyelet popped out. The leather is simply too thin, to take the strain of lacing them up to anything vaguely approaching tight, as there are strain marks on several others as well. It's truly a pity as they are very comfortable and otherwise wearable.

It has been over 20 years since I last owned a pair of real leather shoes with leather soles. These fit very nicely out of the box and I just need to break them in a bit. I forgot how much leather shoes squeak when you first get them. Thank you very much!

Boot runs large
I ordered size 9 (my regular shoe size) but this boot runs about one size large and is very wide in the heel. I will need to return for a size 8. Otherwise, the boot is well made, has a leather sole, and looks period.

Serious boots
Admittedly I was a bit skeptical about spending that kind of money on boots. However I was blown away by their quality. I could go to war in these, if I was on a horse and carried a sword and lived in the 19th century. I love them. they are thick, heavy duty and will certainly last a life time. Might leave them to my son. Buying everything I need from this company. All of the items thus far have been exemplary. Huzzah!

Men's Cavalry Boots
As a life long reenactor and cowboy action shooter I am constantly looking for new "personas" to assume. It is very important that my character appear period correct in every manner, but most importantly his dress. I research my persona extensively. When I decide on the clothing for my character I invest heavy research to find the best quality articles of clothing for the best price. Historical Emporium has been a mainstay for my clothing throughout the years. I will continue to return to Historical Emporium because I know I will receive excellent customer service, quality merchandise and fair prices. The boots were better than expected. Top quality and excellent fit. Many thanks!

Excellent Boots
These are great value for money and exactly as described. The soles are slick when new as with any full leather sole. When I get some wear in them, I will get a traction sole and heel applied. you would need to pay at least twice as much money elsewhere to get a boot as authentic and as well made as these. They do fit a little large, but with thick socks are comfortable.

I ordered size 9 boots after reading reviews that the boots run large. I normally wear size 9.5 boots and still the boots were a little too big. I put insoles in the boots and that really helped the fit. The quality and workmanship of the boots are great. A great addition to my civil war uniform. Overall Iím very pleased with these boots.

These are REAL
Very good experience all around. The product was excellent (Black Cavalry Riding Boots) and customer service was very helpful. The boots only come in whole sizes and I am usually a 10 1/2. I ordered 11 and they were way too large. I spoke with customer service and they were quite helpful with tips and eventually helped me exchange for size 10's. Very easy and relatively quick turnaround on the exchange. The 10's fit great by the way, the boots run a tad large for their sizes. I went riding in them today (2 different horses) and they were great! Very authentic look, feel, grip and construction. Oh, the sole at the toe was a bit too, ok, WAY to square for my liking, so I rounded them off just a bit on a grinding wheel and re-blacked with a Sharpee marker. Perfect.

riding boots, long
These boots are made basically the same way as was done in the 1860s and issued by the govt., though men could purchase their own boots of a higher quality. Square-toed, they are wide enough for me and I wear a 9-Wide and might have been okay with a size 8-Wide in these boots. Well constructed and sturdy though unlined and your pant legs will probably have to be stuffed into them, but that's how these were worn back in their time. Excellent for reenactment. I shall be Lt. Col. Sawdust!

Good for the Loot
I have a fair number of western boots. Some were for SASS, others for snake country. I will summarize these boots so you can decide for yourself. Overall, for the money, they are a good deal. The boots are not lined so they will sag unless you stuff your pants into them. Soles and heels are leather and will not stand up well to water. I bought rubber sole and heel caps and glued them on with Shoe Goo, also sealing the leather edges, boot heel, etc. My foot size is 10D. I often buy a size larger (since I don't run marathons in boots) in order to be able to remove them; but since I read so much of these boots being oversize, I bought 10 normal width. The length is good but the width is way large. I added insoles. There is no spur shelf so getting these off (with a tight fit) will be murder. The tops of my boots measured 18" in circumference. Since these boots measure 18" from heel to top, without a large circumference it would be very difficult to get your foot into a narrow shaft, tall boot, without a zipper. Ever wonder why people buy tall boots with zippers...this is why. These are the tallest boots I have ever found and I have 6 pairs of high-priced kicks. I bought these for work I do not want to subject $350+ boots to.

Mens Riding Long Boot
I was a little leery when purchasing these boots as the price seemed too good to be true compared to what other boots in the same style run. Reviews overwhelmingly complained that the top opening was too big, which was a godsend for me, I have a hard time finding tall boots because I have massive Calf muscles and almost every boot is nowhere near loose enough in the stovepipe to get up my leg. These ones were perfect. Great value and made very well for the price. Toe is very very square, but i like it, reminds me of civil war era dragoon styled riding boots. Would buy again.

Great Boots!
These are fantastic boots. I have been eying them longingly for a while and finally ordered. As of this review, I have been wearing them for several weeks and have to report that they are excellent! The leather is high quality. These are well made, serviceable boots that would easily stand up to a day in the saddle--they are not cosmetic props. I was a little concerned at first because I have a difficult time getting a good fitting shoe, so I am cautious about ordering footwear I can't try on first. The other reviews are spot on about the sizing. The boots run large, so order down. I wear orthotics and envisioned winter hunting socks, so I ordered a 9 when I normally wear a 9.5 I have my orthotics in and thick socks and have a near perfect fit (they are actually just a tad on the roomy side, but that's what I wanted). Great boots!

These boots are very nice and comfortable. My only dislike is that the top of the boot is a little too wide. I am tall and thin. The width is suited for a much bigger calf.

Lovely
Most people say order a size down. I would go so far as to say order two sizes down. I wear a size twelve, normally. But the size 10 boot fits perfectly. Solid construction. Better than anything you'd find at JC Penny's. I would say that the calf circumference is a bit large. It still works. But it doesn't quite have that narrow look all the way up that is seen so often in the old pictures. I do think they are worth the price.

After reading many of the reviews before purchasing the boots, I decided to go with my gut feeling. I wear 12.5 boot and decided to stay with the size 12. The fit was perfect. The toes were a little more square than I like and the spur ledge was a little narrow, but all in all great boots and a great value. I was amazed at how fast I received my purchase. Great customer service.

Leather bound awesomeness!
Love these boots! I have been burned on lesser quality boots, but these have more than made up for bad choices over the years. The fit is perfect - I went a whole size smaller based upon other reviewers recommendations and after speaking with a very nice and patient company representative. The height is perfect - I wanted something I could wear my knee breeches with without leaving a gap. They are also easy on, easy off - a major plus! Furthermore, the boots are stylish for multiple periods - no need to look any further. And have I mentioned comfort? These fit the bill. I would buy again - and perhaps I shall! Best investment I ever made, worth every penny!

I bought these boots from Historical Emporium because their customer service is so good and I knew in the end I would be satisfied. I called and talked to first them to ensure I had the correct sizing and then ordered them. They came quickly and fit as expected. The toes are pretty square but I knew that when I bought them. That bothered me less than I thought one I had them on. Later I may round them off with a sander but for now I like them as they are. I use them with several costumes I have including a steampunk one and a colonial costume. Good quality.

Best boots ever
I have a wide foot, usually requiring a 12 4E, and despite that have had to use an old-fashioned shoe stretcher to make anything close to a comfortable fit in the many cowboy boots I have bought over the past few decades.. Square toed boots with a high arch are really hard to find, especially with a leather sole. Size 12 was out of stock here, so I took the plunge and ordered a 13, having first asked if I could return if they did not fit. They responded...no problem. Boots arrived in time for my 75th trip around the sun on this satellite, and that day I celebrated (wearing my "riding pants" and suspenders and vest as well, which I had bought previously). I swear my Arab gelding looked a hell of a lot better that day with my shiny new boots tucked into his stirrups. (Just need some longer stirrup straps to go over the arch...but I don't use spurs much these days anyway). A natural felt insert helped the boots fit, and they were real comfortable first time on, which counts a lot if you have gout in your big toes!!!. I especially like the height of the leather upper, since my previous 10" boot tops used to catch on the saddle flap at times. I could go on, but you get the picture. Six stars at least.

I can't get over the quality for the price of this boot. I wear a size 11 and I ordered an 11. it does run a little large, but as in other reviews mention this about this boot I was expecting it. I just added a thicker sock and the fit is comfortable and pleasant. I can't wait to get them all broken in and have them get that natural "patina" that a good pair of boots deserve.

I am playing Adam Pontipee for a production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I wanted to look authentic, but wear a boot that I could run, jump ,dance and fight in without it breaking down. These boots have been all of the above. I am about 250 pounds, and I have worn the boots every day for a month and have not seen even one hint of degredation of the seams or soles. I am totally pleased and would recommend these boots to my closest friends.

Initially hesitant
These are great! I was initially hesitant after reading some the reviews about these boots - but decided to pull the trigger anyways and purchase them. I was VERY pleasantly surprised when I received them and discovered that they were not the costume boots I was half expecting them to be - but really nice name brand boots that I had actually been looking at at a department store just the other week. Yes the sole is slick - but that will pass with wear - and there IS a slight creaking - but after looking online at more reviews I read a very easy fix for that and it will help prolong the life of the boot. All in all - very satisfied!

Gorgeous... but creaky!
I have loved every purchase I've made from Historical Emporium. I own a gorgeous overcoat, a vest or two and a pile of shoes -- the latter being the main thing that drew me to the site and has kept me coming back. Unfortunately, these particular boots have not delighted me the way my previous three shoe purchases have done, and for just one simple reason: CREAKING! These are the creakiest shoes I've ever owned, to the point where I don't dare wear them to work in my VERY quiet open-bay office. You can hear the creaking from halfway across the cube maze. I need to look into a way to reduce the creaking noise -- I know simply wearing them will help, breaking them in, but is there anything Historical Emporium can recommend to help speed up the process? A kind of oil or wax to rub in and improve the give? Don't get me wrong -- they're gorgeous boots. But this issue really has been disappointing, and next time I'll stick to buying more of the kind I purchased previously, which don't have this problem. Thanks -- I am still a big fan!

Costume Shoes
I searched and searched online for a dress boot to wear at my wedding this summer, until I found this shoe. The pictures on the website made it look like everything I had looked for. I ordered the boot and eagerly awaited its arrival. I was so disappointed, however, when they came that I immediately returned them. The pictures on the website are not at all true to the color, texture, and quality of the product's leather. If you want a better idea of what the boot looks like, check it out on the Stacy Adam's website. Even their pictures aren't perfectly accurate. This shoe could not be worn for anything other than a costume. The leather upper looks and feels like plastic; the shoe laces are also of a poor quality. I would not recommend this boot to anyone who is looking for real footwear.

Sensational
A fashionable gentleman could not do better. I wear a size 12 or 13 shoe, normally the latter, and I went with a 12 in this case and they fit well, maybe even a little large. I would recommend them to anyone.

Compare to authentic
These boots compare VERY favorably to an authentic similar pair I own. The leather is somewhat thicker, and therefore somewhat stiffer, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. I am considering getting the same in black so I can save the originals.

aesthetically pleasing
though a nice pair of boots they did need some breaking in. the soles were slippery and i slid around carpeted surfaces for a few days so wear those boots in early. also its been a few weeks and I've already lost 3 of the upper lacing pins. i may have been lacing my boots too tight but that's the way i like them. other than that i love theses boots there aesthetically pleasing with a simple design and an air of sophistication.

We purchased all his clothes for the wedding from this site after months of looking elsewhere we returned to complete the outfit. They where just the last piece to match some wonderful clothes. We did an out door/indoor wedding. They stood up well to the dirt, dancing, and sword play at our wedding. We then took them on our hoonymoon and they filled in for modern dress shoes.The shoes did squeak throughout the wedding and week long cruise, so do take some time to break them in before any important events. They are stiff, but that like the squeking we preseve with go away with a proper break in period.We will return again to buy more outfits for future events from this site. My husband looks horid in a modern suit but dashing in the victorian wear.

Very Good Qualilty
These are excellent. They look very fine quality. They buttoned up easily enough and looked great. I wore them to GENCON this year as part of my steampunk outfit. They are so nice I will wear them on those occasions when I want to really dress up. They do not look cheap or costume at all.

Nice 'Spats'
I purchased these with an "Inverness" coat. I wear them with the Victorian Tailcoat also sold by H.E. These are a little more expensive than other spats on other sites on the 'net but the quality is no comparison. These fit well, button up well & look sharp. I have the white ones which have a nice satin finish. If I decide on another colour, I will be ordering them from these folks. Their delivery turn-around is spectacular. Thanks H.E.

Spats-classic
I bought these spats to improve on the snap version I had. (I'm a bit snobbish when it comes to dressing) and these are exactly what I wanted. They look great.

Very good purchasing experience
My home was not within this Shop's int'l shipping location, but the hospitable staff of the Customers Service had kindly instructed me to direct the shipping address to my friend's home in Canada. Eventually the item had been brought to me safe and sound by my Canadian friend. The item itself is terrific in quality and I really hope I could do more shopping with this great Store in the future, if only they could consider expanding their int'l shipping list to include mine... A big thanks !

White Satin Spats
I found my new spats to be of excellent quality and style and have taken to wearing them on a regular basis. Not just for special occasion. I may just order another pair!

Classy Touch
My husband and I wore these spats at our wedding. Originally, I was a bit suspect, but I'm glad I overcame that feeling because they added an excellent touch to our roaring 20's/high society themed wedding. Everyone complimented them and told us that they made the outfit (we wore formal tails). The material is superb and very durable.

Although this site specializes in Victorian Era clothing, It works great for Twenties themed male formal accessories. Since Mens formal never had a drastic change. Got many complements on these spats.

The mens button spats are unsatisfactory. The stitching is terrible, & the button hole stitching is all coming loose.

Spats, they do exist.
As I had mentioned in a another review on this site, I found Historical Emporium [HE] while doing a Google search for "spats". There was a surprisingly large amount of info available. After looking as some sites I found HE to be the best; best in product selection, information about items, historical background about the products with the most important info being why these items were made and used to begin with. Proved to be very enlightening. I've used these spats with my regular shoes at the office to keep the cold air under my desk from getting my ankles too cold; I do have a footwarmer heating pad for my feet but the spats help to keep my ankles warm without having to wear ankle high boots. A surprisingly clever product that still has a place in the fashion/clothing world of today.

Affordable and Well Made Spats
I am a professional living history entertainer and as such, my costumes must stand up to regular heavy use. I was very pleased to find that the materials used in making the spats was of good quality and should stand up to regular use and laundering. Thanks for an affordable option.

Too Cool!!!
These were the second set of spats that I ordered from you guys and I couldn't be happier!!! They are constructed extremely well and the canvas is nice and heavy, making a very cool statement. They button easily and are perfectly sized. Thanks so much for your company and excellent customer service!! I will be ordering from you again very soon!!

Fashionable and Functional
I was concerned about the sizing being different from what I was used to, but the measurement guide on the page was spot-on. They fit my shoes perfectly and don't impede me while wearing them. They fit over tennis shoes as well, giving me the ability to wear comfortable shoes without my shoes breaking the illusion of the overall outfit.

crimson spats
I'd personally describe these as burgandy rather than crimson, but regardless, I am very happy with them.

2015, I'm bringing spats back
I picked this set up to go with a specific anachronistic ensemble. They were such a nice visual touch, tying together other red elements higher up. I get complements on "those shoe cover thingies" (as nobody seems to know what to call them). I think I'm going to get more of these in different colors and add them to my more contemporary outfits. These seem to be nicely made, rugged looking. Thumbs up!

Amazing!
After much debate on what to wear for Comic Con this year (I vacillated between investing in a high-end Star Wars costume, the Bandersnatch from Alice in Wonderland, etc), I at last decided to go as a Victorian Doctor and purchased an ENTIRE outfit along with many accessories, all at the VERY last minute, from Historical Emporium. Everything I ordered was in stock (Woot!) and I upgraded the shipping to Next Day Air based on my indecisiveness and my waiting to order 3 days before Comic Con. I placed my order on Sunday night. My order arrived Tuesday! EVERYTHING I ordered was perfectly amazing and of high quality! I was (am!) blown away! AND, to top it all off, Historical Emporium refunded my Next Day Air Shipping ($63!) because I live in Southern California, which is within their 1 day ground shipping zone already. What? Who does that? Holy moly - what a great company, what outstanding service and what amazing products! I'd write more but Comic Con starts in 24 hours and I've got to get ready!

Best on the market
I purchased a different pair on line and was disappointed with the quality and returned them. I ordered a pair from Historical Emp., they arrived in a timely manner and were of excellent quality and not a cheap costume piece like the first ones I received from a different Amazon Co. that were cheap vinyl China made prop.

Absolutely a quality product; however, a little difficult to button up when the old body is not as limber as it once was.

High quality materials and solid construction. Looks good with my period tuxedo ensemble. Only wish there were more color options like possibly black-on-red Paisley. Will definitely stop here for my future needs.

Oh, yeah
So, I bought these to complete my outfit but was very surprised at the quality of them. They are not one layer of fabric, they are lined with a very nice black fabric. Both layers are good heavy cloth that should last a good while. Sizing was spot on and they just look great. I'm going to enjoy these.
