After a VERY long time of wanting a pair of American Duchess shoes to go with my historical dresses and much debate on which pair would be best (I love them all), I finally gave in and chose these for their classic look. I was nervous about the fit since I have wide feet and shoes hardly ever work with me. I try my best to avoid purchasing shoes online because I always have to send them back. However, these were perfect! I am typically a size 8 but size up to a 9 if the shoes run small, and that was just the way to go. They don't pinch the width of my feet as most shoes do, and even though I sized up, I have just enough room in the heel and toe. If you have wide feet, definitely buy a size larger than you typically do.
A pricy investment, but entirely worth the money!

Manhattan review

These boots are simply lovely!! Really authentic and I love that there are no zippers or modern attributes to these fabulous boots. They look great with Victorian and Edwardian attire for period dress up events but equally well with modern vintage attire in the everyday wardrobe of romantics, sigh, you know who you are ladies

Manhattan review

These are awesome. I can wear them all day. I want the black too.

Manhattan review

I wore these for a solid 8 hours and they were amazingly comfortable! I am always wary of pointy toes and normally avoid them. The heel is so sturdy and well balanced that on uneven sidewalks I did not have any wobbly moments or buckling ankles. Manhattan is a nice sturdy yet fashionable boot! I wear an 8.5 but for AD boots I always go for a 9. Perfect fit and no squished toes!
