I have excitedly ordered many of the historically accurate shoe styles created for the American Duchess line, but I hesitated to get the black Tavistock button boots. I don't currently do Victorian, and black is so plain, and...and...and...and then there was white. Oh! Yes, these I can make into any color, and when eventually I do start making Victorian costumes for myself I will have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it.
So, dear reader, I ordered them. I also went ahead and got the button hook, because, as stated, these are historically accurate and I will need it. If you are also considering pre-ordering these lovelies bear in mind that pre-order only runs through May 26th and will have a quick delivery after that point as the shoes are already being manufactured. Just in time for all of your summer events!
