Note: Please note measurements are approximate from outside of boot. Our boots are made of supple leather and therefor accommodate varying foot widths within a range. We have found that sizes run pretty true to modern sizes. In general, modern feet are not used to the softness of period shoes so we recommend choosing a size larger than you normally would so as to have plenty of room to add a modern insole. For those needing maximum support we strongly recommend adding the vibram sole option to your boots. Please note that boots with vibram soles added take an additional 7-10 days to ship and cannot be shipped via expedited methods (Fed Ex).

“Finally a pair of reasonably priced, period appropriate shoes!! Footwear is the hardest thing to find when costuming oneself; it can be very frustrating to have to resort to hiking boots or whatever to finish a costume. I was so happy to open the box from revival and find these very cool shoes that will provide a supreme finishing touch to my costume.
By the way, during my presentations to grade four kids, they have asked to see my footwear! Thanks loads!”
