Pompadour Leather 18th Century Shoes are the picture-perfect footwear for your exquisite Baroque and Rococo costumes.

Named for the famous Madame de Pompadour, these heels are closely based on extant early 18th century shoes found in museums, and feature an easy tabbed closure that can be laced with your favorite colored ribbon, cockade, or pom-pom decoration.

Accurate for the 1680s all the way through the 1760s, the Pompadours feature an all-leather construction, our reproduction Louis heels, pointed toes, and the characteristic white rand seen on original 18th century shoes. Wear them for any and all early 18th c. impressions.

Beautiful Shoes!

I’m so glad I finally ordered a pair of these shoes and couldn’t be happier! Definitely ordering more!!!!

A most pleasant surprise

I ordered them for the looks of the outfit I was going with. And I took a chance. I wore them brand new for an all-day walking affair at the Renaissance faire. They continued to be comfortable and quite sturdy on the uneven, sandy and gravelly grounds. I am impressed.

Need them in both colors

I've had my eye on these shoes for over a year. I'm so glad I finally ordered a pair! I need them in white, too. Exactly as pictured, simple and elegant design... I prefer satin to leather, but these are very special shoes.

The curves on this unique heel! These shoes are so curvacious! I love them. Also, the unique heel shape provides a nice platform of support, so you can walk faster with confidence, compared to more contemporary heeled shoes. I sort of wish the heels were maybe 1/4 - 1/2 inch shorter.

I am getting these in white next. I love them!

Love these Shoes!

I've had these for about a year now, and they are my absolute favorite pair of shoes! I can wear them all day walking on concrete and still have them be comfortable by the end of the day. They broke in better than any other pair of street shoes I've ever had, and I've never worn them without getting at least one compliment from strangers on the street.

Not just for re-enactment

I originally got these shoes to go with my historical costuming, but I wore them with normal clothes on errands to break them in. There were so many compliments from total strangers on how they loved my shoes that I wear them all the time. Despite being white, they are really easy to take care of even in Florida with all our rain and humidity (mink oil is your friend).

The sizing is also excellent. I was worried because I have narrow feet and wear a size 4, but the size 5 ends up being perfect because I intended to always wear these with socks/stockings, anyway. They are comfortable for long periods of standing and walking, and I'm kind of in love with the support that comes specifically from the design of the Louis heel.
