Description

Indulge in a piece of history with Flora Embroidered Boots, an exclusive reproduction of the intricate opera and evening boots popular in the late Victorian period. Expertly crafted with intricate botanical detailing, these stunning satin boots will take you back to an era of sophistication and finesse. Wear them with bustle and Belle Epoque attire from the 1870s to c. 1900, or with modern dress as a statement piece.

The Flora Boots are designed in collaboration with the Bata Shoe Museum. Every pair of shoes from the In Bloom collection benefits and supports The Bata Shoe Museum in their study, outreach, and conservation of historic footwear.

As a lace-up boot, Floras are very adjustable for a wide variety of ankle, calf, and instep measurements. The top of the Flora boots does not extend to the widest part of the calf muscle. Measurements scale a little based on size.

These measurements based on size 7.5:
Ankle range - 9 to 13 inches / 22.8 cm to 33 cm
Shaft height - 7.8 inch / 20 cm
Boot top range - 9.4 to 13.4 inches / 24 to 34 cm
Tongue width - 4.5 inch / 11.5 cm

Though the antiques were made in silk, our boots are made in a durable and cleanable polyester satin, the ideal choice for footwear built to last. Spritz your shoes with Angelus Water & Stain Repellent to keep them in good condition and looking swell.

Beautiful shoes, size up if you have wide feet

I bought these shoes to wear to my outdoor wedding in Ireland. I love the profile of these, and the embroidery is so beautiful! I can't wait to wear them. This was my first purchase from American Duchess.

My notes on fit: I have small, wide feet. Usually a women's 6 wide or 5.5 extra wide. I purchased my usual straight size, 6.5, in these but they felt really tight, especially the instep and sides. Exchanged for a size 7 (usually way too big for me in other footwear), and they fit just right. Definitely get a 1/2 size to a full size up if you have wider feet (maybe if you have regular width feet too, and just want it to fit more comfortably).
