Paul Revere - Colonial Boots

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 02-May-2018 15:17:50 EDT

    The Paul Revere boot is as tall as you want it to be. Paul Revere's boot has a natural color cuff of heavy, supple glove leather.� When the boot comes off the bench, the cuff is turned all the way down.� There is plenty of leather cuff for you to easily roll up the cuff to whatever height you desire. The object is to avoid any gap below your breeches or any show of breeches cuff or stocking.� The functional cuff also may be turned up to protect a rider's knees and prevent the entrance of rainwater, etc.

    "By 1727 the riding boot leg had become softer and closer-fitting.....(the) jockey in close fitting boots with brown tops.....the top was turned down below the knee for greater mobility, showing the brown lining.� It was soon adapted for fashionable wear.�These are the boots with brown top featured in caricatures of John Bull. The top boots worn by Thomas Jefferson, now in the Smithsonian are of this type. Quotes from June Swann's "Shoes"��� ISBN 0 7134 09428

    This boot is built upon a squarish antique last.� It has a rounded shank that fits a stirrup well.�The shank is held in place by pegs but the rest of the sole is lock-stitched.� The Revere boot has a steam-molded front piece and a full calfskin lining.�The exterior is polished black calfskin.�Notice the molded front and the rounded shank, in the picture.

    We placed two sturdy pull tabs inside each boot.� If you do not have boot hooks, It's easy enough to carry a couple of leather laces in your pocket. Run a leather lace or sturdy cord through each tab and use them to pull the boot upward.�The "pass line" where your foot is going through the curve is the tightest part of the boot but a shake of talcum powder and a pair of sturdy leather laces will get the boot on.� Slick socks help, too.

    When ordering, be ready to tell us your calf measurement.� The circumference of the boot varies with size and will fit most men.� It can be stretched to accommodate larger calves.

18th Century / Colonial / Revolutionary War / men's shoes, Concord     The toe of the is a little more round than the Franklin's, bringing the style closer to the shoes found at Ft. Ligonier. We took the pattern for the Franklin uppers and formed them over a last taken from an 1860's military shoe. The Concord is available in rough or smooth finish. The left/right Concord is unlined and made of a heavier leather than the Franklin. We wanted more of a common man's shoe.� It is named the Concord in honor of� the heroes who left their homes and their warm beds to gather at the Concord bridge and dare the British Empire to do its worst. Buckles are not included, but are sold separately. The buckle shown is the Military #1 in brass.

    Also can be worn by Ladies, order 1 1/2 size smaller than you Women's Shoe Size.

1758 Ligonier - Men's Colonial Shoe, Black

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 02-May-2018 15:17:50 EDT

18th Century / Colonial / Revolutionary War / men's shoes, 1758 Ligonier     1758 or Ligonier Model is made on a Straight Last., therefore there is No Left or Right shoe. It is available in rough out or smooth finish leather and has a short tongue, round toe (square toes disappeared in 1735) and 1-1/4 inch latchets.

    The 1758 Story.�In 1757-58 a British army was on its way to attack the French stronghold of Fort Duquesne; later known as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.�Delayed by the weather, they established winter quarters at Fort Ligonier in what became the state of Pennsylvania.� A neighboring creek was used as a refuse dump and a flash flood in January or February, 1758 deposited a load of clay that sealed the contents of the dump for two hundred years.�In 1958 the dump was opened and, among other things, a great number of shoes and shoe parts were discovered.�Units of that British army had recently been stationed in Bermuda, Ireland, Britain, Philadelphia and Charleston.� Their shoes had been made in all of those places, reflecting the supply system of the British Army at the time.�The discarded shoes showed fourteen toe styles, a greater number of tongue styles and latchets (straps) from 3/4 inch to 3 inches in width.�There were no boxy square toes. The closest thing was a few examples of a cut-off point something like a "snoot boot."�From the original listour supplier selected the most common or predominant features. The result was a round-toed shoe with a low or moderate heel, short tongue and latchets 1-1/4 inches wide.�That is the shoe we made.�It will serve for a military or everyday shoe from 1740 to 1800.

    Swapping shoes from foot to foot each day. In over a hundred examples, the Ligonier collection showed one or two with evidence of having been swapped from foot to foot. Although there is evidence that some officers put out such orders, the practice was seldom followed.�Can you imagine getting into camp with wet shoes, drying them near the fire, but not too near, so that they are stiff and cold in the morning; and then forcing your feet into the clammy leather that had been molded to the other foot?� No way.� This would also be a fine way to tear up the latchets by re-setting the buckles each day.

    Available in Rough out or smooth leather, they are made from top grain leather for both types and not cheaper splits for the rough-out.�The rough-out reflects the common shoe in Colonial times.�The leather splitting machine was not invented until the 1840's.�In Colonial days, leather was brought to thickness by "currying" or scraping over a wooden beam. Unlined shoes would be made with the smooth side inside to take the place of a lining.�The rough outside leather was dressed with a mixture of soot, lard, bear grease and beeswax. The first commercial shoe polish was advertised in Boston in 1771. For the most authentic appearance, the rough-out Concord or Ligonier 1758 model may be "packed" with commercial shoe polish to simulate the bear grease polish of the Colonial shoemaker.

Franklin - Men's Colonial Shoe, Black

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 02-May-2018 15:17:50 EDT

18th Century / Colonial / Revolutionary War / men's shoes, Franklin     The left/right Franklin is made of black calfskin.� It has a normal heel and is leather lined. The toe is slightly squared but not square enough to limit the style to pre- 1735.� With a longish tongue, the Franklin is a good choice for the gentleman of means. To get a little snobbish, paint your heels red.�Originally, that meant that you had been received at Court but it was widely imitated by all kinds of� fops and pretenders.

    The latchets will accept a 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inch buckle.

American Civil War / Civil War military boots
Repro (size 9�), Original (size 5)     These boots are made by one of the few boot makers in the world that still produces the antique molded front piece. The master boot maker was sent an unworn original model 1859 Boot made in 1865. The top is about 12" tall when measured from the top of the sole and about 14" tall when measured from the floor.

    This boot was originally called the M1851 Artillery Driver's Boot, as it was originally only issued to Artillery Drivers. During the American Civil War they were also issued to Cavalry troops and continued as the Cavalry Boot until replaced by the Model 1872 Boot, which is a modified version of this boot.

    This boot is an exact copy, with the exception of two changes. The originals had been machine pegged, nine pegs to the inch. Ours is stitched due to the lack of machine that can duplicate the work of an 1860's pegging machine. And for comfort the boot is lined with calfskin leather from top to toe. The leather in our boot is a semi-rough cowhide especially selected after studying the original boot. They will take a shine after a few polishes or will take Lexol for a "field-worn" look. They have a sewn sole with a ridged shank pegged into place. This boot has a comfortable square toe and a tight-gripping heel. There are no side seam welts.

    This boot covers an amazing time period. It is ideal for many impressions from just after 1800 through 1900 and beyond. It is suitable for 1800's miners, teamsters, cattlemen, farmers, Indian Wars, Cowboy Shooters, etc.. Mail order catalogues printed in the 1890s show a wide assortment of prices and qualities in styles just like these.

    According to Quartermaster records, most shoes and boots purchased had sewn soles. The pegged sole booties were purchased for .25 and .30 per pair as opposed to the average of about .90 for sewn soles, but the sewn soles were preferred.

    These ship from Florida. Normal delivery time is 5 to 10 days, IF your size is out of stock they will normally take 2 to 6 weeks.

Stove Pipe Boot / Common Boot 1847-1900

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Wednesday, 02-May-2018 15:17:50 EDT

    The Stovepipe boot is dated 1847 to 1900. It was first known as a Common Boot. Reaching almost to the knee and wide enough so the trousers could be tucked. We may find that it dates back further but so far that is the best dates I can find. We have had requests for this two piece boot, so we hope it will fill in for the persona you are trying to create.

    As you can tell it is almost a straight last, but it is a left/right. That means that the arch in the boot will make it comfortable for walking as for riding. A steel shank will give a long life to this fine boot.

    The leg has been widened so you can wear these boots outside of your trousers. The leg height is 17", proportioned to the size. It is lined with calf skin, has pull tabs (not mule ears) on the outside of the top. The toe is a moderate square and the heel is 1 1/4". The top of the boot is about 12" from the ground, depending on the size. The leather is black and smooth but not a high shine. It has a full lining.

    This boot should be good for drovers, prospectors and shooters (before the cowboy boots).

    Be sure to have your calf measurement when ordering. The circumference of the boot varies with size and will fit most men.� It can be stretched to accommodate larger calves.

    These ship from Florida. Normal delivery time is 5 to 10 days, IF your size is out of stock they will normally take 2 to 6 weeks.

Smooth or rough.�Because of a glitch in naming the widths of our very first Bootees, our E width is more like a standard D. Be sure to allow plenty of room if you wear heavy socks. Sewn-On Soles.

American Civil War / Civil War shoes / brogans, Southern / Monticello

    The Southern or Monticello model. is also appropriate for Seminole Wars and as a work shoe�from the early 1800's until the present day,�is built on the same lasts as the Federal Contract Bootee. It has five lace holes and a pull tab on the back of the boot. It's color is russet or natural and the rough-out leather takes on a beautiful color when given a coat of Lexol or other oil. Sewn-On Soles.

    The Monticello was patterned after the shoes shown on a Gettysburg statue of Civil War Confederate soldiers around a mounted Gen. Robert E. Lee.�It is reputed that the Confederates had a shoe factory at a Florida town called Monticello. However, there is also a Monticello in Alabama. We find no trace of the Monticello, Florida factory.

    The Monticello or Civil War Southern shoe is the closest thing to a ready-made 1800s work shoe that you will find. Shoes like these were packed 100 pairs to the barrel and shipped from Boston to St Louis and on to Taos, to the Western frontier and any seaport that the Stars and Stripes traded with. This type of shoe was worn by the Yankee seamen who, in the 1820s rounded Cape Horn to load cattle hides in the tiny Spanish port of Los Angeles de California.�They took the hides back to Boston, where they were made into shoes and harness.

    Normal delivery time is 2 to 6 weeks.
