Boots and Shoes, General Information

Item Last Updated: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:45:47 EST

    Our Reproduction boots and shoes are made from top grain leather with the rough side out (unless otherwise specified) for greater durability. Styles include shoes and boots from the late 1700's through the 1800's and into the 1900s.

    Some of the shoes and, such as the Stacy Adams and Oak Tree Farms, are NOT reproduction. They are what could be call retro, as they are modern made shoes that look like those of the earlier period. In most cases the differenced is minor.

Civil War Brogans/Jefferson Bootee, U.S. Contract

U.S. and C.S. as well as Civilian Dress or Work

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:45:47 EST

American Civil War / Civil War shoes / brogans,  U.S. Contract
    Civil War Contract bootees are available in smooth top grain or rough flesh-out. The leather is staked until pliable before cutting out the pieces for the uppers. Most Civil War bootees were issued in smooth leather (right) but rough-out (left) seems to have taken over among re-enactors. These Contract Bootee have four lace holes and are available in sizes from 5E to 15EEE in full and half sizes. 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.

    According to Quartermaster records, most shoes and boots purchased had sewn soles. The pegged sole booties were purchased for $1.25 and $1.30 per pair as opposed to the average of about $1.90 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.

Civil War Brogan/Bootee, Southern/Monticello

C.S. as well as Civilian Work Shoes

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated:

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.

Concord - Men's Colonial Shoe, Black

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:45:47 EST

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: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:45:47 EST

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: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:45:47 EST

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.
