Manhattan Button Boots are elegant, authentic reproductions of the cloth-top button up boots that were so popular in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. Made of high-quality calf leather and durable cotton sateen, the Manhattan Button Boots feature a real side-button closure - no modern methods such as zippers, elastic, or velcro have been used.
With their flared 2 inch French heel and leather soling, the Manhattan Button Boots are historically accurate for late Victorian through Edwardian eras, all the way up to and including and Great War impressions. They're also perfect for your cosplay, Steampunk, Lolita, Gothic, or Downton Abby attire. Our Manhattan boots do not have any modern closures. As with original button boots, 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 are also available in Tan/Brown.
