Several examples of this style shoe have been found, most notably a shoe maker's catalog, which showed several variations of side elastic (gaiter in period parlance) men's shoes. Made along the same line of thinking as our modern velcro closure, these men's shoes are designed to look like dress shoes, but with the ease of taking on an off of a gaiter.
Made in grain leather, the sole soles are attached with double rows of wood pegs. Our reproduction bears the classsic 19th century feature of a shallow profile toe, as well as the square shape.
If you order a shoe that is not in stock it will take about 16 weeks to make. Thank you for your understanding.
