Keckley Victorian Side-Lace Boots are the go-to footwear choice for ladies of the 1820s through the 1860s.

We've named these versatile and attractive Victorian boots for Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley, dressmaker and friend to Mary Todd Lincoln. Enslaved until she was 37, Keckley bought her freedom in 1855 and went on to become a successful and influential seamstress, author, and civil activist. 

This popular style of Victorian ankle boot is made of a refined yet sturdy cotton sateen upper foxed with smooth calf leather on the toes and heels. The side-lace closure, unique to this period, makes it easy to get your boots on and adjusted just as you like. Wear Keckley Victorian boots for both day and evening dress, outdoor or indoor events, or with modern outfits for a secret nod to the past.
