Theater use...
We needed these for a period-ish piece echoing Chekhov. They came in jig time, so the ladies had time to rehearse in them. Perfection. And handsome too!

Awesome shoes
I bought these shoes for everyday work use. I ordered a size up because I am a half size and I have wide feet. Even though the shoes look narrow they fit well and surprisingly didn't squish my feet!. They are very comfortable and I can wear them all day without any issues.

Shoe review
I have had to return the shoes to exchange for a larger size as they were too tight. I really can't give you feedback on the shoes inasmuch as I could barely get them on. I normally wear a 10. Only one time have I had to go higher in size until these shoes. I'm hoping that the 11 will be good for me.

Perfect boots
I ordered the ankle boots to wear to a wedding in NOLA on Halloween weekend with a Victorian theme. Guests were encouraged to wear Victorian costumes. These boots and the purple parasol were the perfect finishing touch to my costume TY!

Great for me
This was exactly what I was looking for to complete a 1920's costume. I ordered a size bigger than usual and do think the sizes are true to form, but is still working out okay with socks. Great customer service too.

Not as expected
Though stylish, these boots were not as expected. Very hard leather and was advised by Customer Service, as there are no 1/2 sizes, take the larger. I was swimming in the boot; no socks would have made the difference. Also, just wore them for less than 5-minutes in the house and could already see the "leather" may end up creasing. Cost me $11 to return.

Great boot for The Music Man!
Thrilled to receive these good-quality boots that arrived in a few days, were exactly as described, and are working very well for me in a production of The Music Man. I feel like you can't beat the price and the quality is solid. I did round up .5 on the size to leave room for socks and comfort insoles which was a good choice.

These are the absolutely most INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL booties!!! I got them because I have total foot drop and experimented with shoes that would hold my ankles at 90 degrees, and these have the perfect size little heel, and not only did I get my 'walk' back, but I get so many compliments on them!! NO MORE BRACES UP TO MY KNEES FOR SUPPORT.....I AM ONE HAPPY CAMPER and will be getting more 'booties' in other colors!! THANK YOU for such a HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT, THEY ARE INCREDIBLY WELL MADE AND CAME PACKED SO WELL!!!

Quick delivery Very nice boots, comfortable. Only issue is the top of boot rubs leg. Hopefully this will go away when shoe is broke in.

Pleasantly surprised!
I needed Victorian style boots for a music video shoot and was told about this site by my fellow actresses. They recommend I order a size up and wear thick socks for all day filming, so that's what I did. I simply cannot express my appreciation for the amazing fit and comfort! This is the first time I have come away from an all day shoot without soreness... and we were DANCING in this one! So, I am also an "extras casting director" and do many westerns. I am highly recommending Historical Emporium to all of my extras as well as main cast members. Who knew that you didn't have to pay $150-$200 to get the look??? These boots were a steal at UNDER $50! So pleasantly surprised! Thank you!!!

Terrible Smell
I received my boots and as soon as I opened the box, this terrible chemical smell came out. It smelled like fuel? The material the boots are made of reek. I was hoping that after a couple hours being out of the box, the smell would go away...but it didn't. So I went to return them, and found out that they do not pay for return shipping! BEWARE!! It cost me $28.95 to return these boots that I paid around $50.00 for. I debated keeping them, but the smell was so bad, I wouldn't be able to wear them out. Make sure you read return policies first!

Love these boots! They've got grippy rubber soles, and are covered with a beautiful lace. They're quite comfortable too, and made of far sturdier leather than I expected at this price. Fun yet sensible vintage booties!

These boots are nothing short of perfect!
I have to admit, I was skeptical of ordering wedding shoes from a website that sells historical clothing. I'm used to shopping online through large retailers such as Etsy or Amazon, so I was nervous about this purchase. But my experience with ordering these boots was smooth sailing. They shipped within a week, and when they arrived they were gorgeous, and high quality. I'm using them for wedding shoes, and while the boots are antique white vs my dress which is bright white, I feel they still match very well. Not to mention how classy and elegant they look. 10/10, would definitely recommend people shop here.

White Victorian Boot
We are using these for a musical theatre stage play of Mary Poppins for the Jolly Holiday song to be worn with the white and red dress. I was concerned about the sizing but both of my Mary's say they are comfortable. They have been wearing them for rehearsals. They do require socks especially since these shoes being worn for dancing.

Beautiful Victorian Ankle Boot
These boots are beautiful and fit well. Look is elegant and expensive. I purchased the 'white' and they are a soft white with a very light ivory white lace tie string.

I figured what do I have to lose. I placed the order thinking there would be enough time to get something else if these did not look the same in real life as they did on the web. They we cost friendly so if I didn't like them it would be ok. I got the order to my door in no time flat with no extra charges. Well, what can I say. These boots are made for walking. They are so amazing. I love them tons. Thank you so much Historical Emporium! xo

I bought the boots for my wedding and they are beautiful and fit perfectly. The only problem I have is the laces looked cream color in the picture and are actually yellow and don't go with the my dress. I need to try and find new laces.
