Description

We must admit the Edwardians had serious style when it came to sporting attire. Our Cambridge Edwardian Bicycle Boots echo this past panache with glorious leather paired with flexible cotton twill canvas, quick-lacing, and double straps at the top. We've based the Cambridges on several pairs of original bicycle boots from the early 20th century, but updated for modern comfort, width, and durability. These boots aren't just for cycling, too. Wear them with bloomers, breeches, knickers, or skirts of any length for historical, vintage, historybounding, or modern attire. 

As a lace-up boot, Cambridge Boots are very adjustable for a wide variety of ankle and calf measurements. The top of the Cambridge Boots do reach the calf muscle, and we've designed this area to be particularly adjustable for a broad range.

Calf Size Range - 14 - 20 in / 35.6 - 50.8 cm
Ankle circumference  - 8.5 - 13 in / 21.6 - 32.5 cm
Boot height (does not include heel) - 13.75 in / 34.9 cm

    Worth every penny

    It was hard to justify spending so much on shoes, but I’ve worn these so many times and I can’t tell you how much I love them. They’re super versatile (I’ve matched them with so many outfits, with pants and skirts, with everyday looks and costume pieces), very comfy, and I just feel awesome when I wear them. One of my favorite clothing pieces.

    Wow

    These boots look amazing in the website photos, but they far exceed those photos in person. They are absolutely stunning. They fit true to size. With the lacing easy to adjust to make sure there is enough room in the foot and leg, they are actually very comfortable.

    Beautiful Boots for Adventuring!

    I absolutely adore these boots. When they went up for pre-order I knew I had to have them! They were well worth the wait. As with all of my AD shoes, the first thing I did was take them to my cobbler and have a rubber half sole put on to protect the leather. I also had him waterproof them. With those things done, I can wear them with confidence.

    I recently wore them for an all day excursion around the San Diego Zoo. It was a long day of walking and standing and these lovelies were well up for the task. The kept my feet comfy all day. They also provide good ankle support with enough flexibility to make walking easy.

    Needless to say, I highly recommend these boots!

    Beautiful boots, not for everyday wear

    These boots are beyond beautiful, and truly a joy to wear. I’d been saving up for a pair since I saw them, and absolutely adored them once I managed to buy them. The shoe itself is built well and while the leather does scuff and wear easily, but that’s part of the charm.

    However, the metal used for the quick lacing and buckles leaves much to be desired. Both buckles broke on one shoe last week, and the metal pieces for lacing could be bent with my bare hands. My advice to purchasers would be to be very careful with the buckles, and perhaps search for a different pair if you’re taller/have wider calves. Then again, that’s just personal opinion.

    No discomfort upon wearing, some odd folds in the twill but nothing that hurts. I’d recommend these shoes highly for more petite people to be worn every so often, but if you don’t adhere well to standard sizing, maybe find a lower pair of shoes.

    Oh no! The metal of the buckles should not break that easily, if you email our customer service team at info@americanduchess.com we will do our best to set this right for you!

    Beautiful boots!

    My new favorite pair of boots by miles. Construction and material seem like they will only get better with time... the leather scuffs easily so be careful trying them on! Once you decide to keep them, though, wear and tear looks awesome.

    Re: fit- if you're over 5'5" or have long legs, the shape of the calf will hit a little bit awkwardly and create some bunching at the ankle. Doesn't take away from the style or comfort, and kind of par for the course in terms of being above average height. Be ready for it but don't let it stop you!
