Manhattan Button Boots are lovely, authentic reproductions of the popular cloth-top button boots of the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. Made from top grade calf leather and durable cotton, the Manhattan Button Boots feature a real side-button closure - no zippers, elastic, velcro, or modern methods have been used.
With a flared 2 inch French heel and leather soling, the Manhattan Button Boots are historically accurate for late Victorian, Edwardian, and Great War impressions, as well as cosplay, Steampunk, Downton Abby, Titanic, Lolita, and Gothic attire. Manhattan boots do not have any modern closures. Manhattan boots may be custom fit to your ankle and calf by moving the buttons.
You will need a button hook to easily and quickly get your boots on.
Manhattans also come in Grey/Black.
