Renoir mid-Victorian Button Boots offer sturdy sophistication with the perfect mid-Victorian silhouette. Period-correct for the late 1850s to the 1880s, Renoir features all-leather materials, true side-buttoning closure, and the comfort you need for all-day re-enactments.
These Victorian boots have square toes, a short heel molded from an original, and an attractive scalloped edge and top, making them practical yet feminine, and ideal for a fashionable Victorian lady.
Patterned directly from extant examples of button boots from the 1850s, 1860s, and 1870s, wear Renoir for Victorian events, fairs, reenactments, or with modern aesthetic dress for an interesting and unique look.
You will need a button hook to easily and quickly get your boots on.
