One of our most popular boots of all time is now available in D-width!

Step into the Paris of the past in a gorgeous pair of Paris Boots. These incredible lace-up boots are direct reproductions of an original pair of Edwardian boots in our collection. They feature an almond-shaped toe with a sturdy sole and adjustable lace-up closure, paired with our attractive 1.6 inch / 4 cm Cuban heel.

Paris Boots are your all-day walking footwear for any occasion. Pair them with historic clothing of the 1890s, Edwardian and Great War periods, 1920s, and even 1930s and 1940s. So versatile is the Paris design that they'll look super cute with outfits both historical and modern.

As a lace-up boot, Paris Boots are very adjustable for a wide variety of ankle and instep measurements. The top of the Paris boots does not extend to the widest part of the calf muscle.

    Nigh Unto Perfection

    I live my life in Reeboks, so I was a bit apprehensive purchasing a pricey pair of boots without even the ability to try them on beforehand. I should not have worried! The 9.5W, the exact same size I wear in trainers, fit like a glove straight out of the box! The heel, which had concerned me given that I haven't worn any shoe with any sort of heel for more than a decade, is perfect and immensely stable. And even without the arch supports that I need for running shoes and sandals, I had no problem walking around in these shoes for several hours.

    My only criticism is that I have very thick calves, so at the top of the boot, the tongue barely meets the sides of the boot to give full coverage. A slightly tongue that widened slightly more would have made the boots work even better for me. But I am well aware that I am an anomaly in that regard, and will happily be making further American Duchess purchases in the future.

    I love them so much!!!

    These boots are gorgeous and super comfy. And the smell, oh the wonderful smell of good leather that these shoes have. I ordered these to be worn as my wedding day shoes and they're going to look perfect with my dress. Definitely use your dress shoes as a reference point for sizing. I still went up half a size just to be safe and I don't regret it. I wear a 9.5 in tennis shoes and ordered a 10W and that fit wonderfully for me. The price is a little painful but these shoes are worth it.


    I’ve been eyeing these shoes since I first stumbled across them around in 2021 and I’m so happy to finally have them in my possession! They’re absolutely comfortable, and they add a splendid touch to my day. 1000/10

    How could I have known...

    ...what true comfort and style were, before my foot entered this wonderful boot?! I truly had no idea; decades of wearing leather boots as a tallish trans woman with wide, asymmetrical feet had conditioned me to accept pain, shame, and compromise as the cost of my self expression. Such dark times! My feet *swam* in oversized doc martens when I wasn't stuffing them like sausage meat into pumps made woth only the daintiest of cissexual feet in mind.
    No more, I say! For I have made a profound act of self love, and I have procured these boots for myself.
    It is small hyperbole to say that when I put on these 10D 6" shaft Victorian boots, the world became perfect.
    These boots were shipped promptly. The packaging is protective without presenting excessive waste, which is important to me! The boots themselves have Styrofoam inserts that I can use in place of a proper shoe tree, until I find a pair for these.
    The leather is *smooth*, the stitching is *tight* the fit is *true*.
    Look at me. Look into my eyes.
    I promise you that *these boots are worth the price*


    I never leave reviews but I had to this time! I have been wanting American Duchess shoes for years. When I heard they were releasing select wides shoes I was ecstatic and popped over to see which ones.

    To my delight they not only had a wide but a 10.5W which is always a pain to find. After much debate I chose the black leather Paris boots to get started.

    I pulled them out of the box and was immediately worried they would be too narrow. Probably nerves. After some work loosening the laces and getting my foot situated, they fit like an absolute dream. They’re fantastic work dresses and jeans alike and my feet felt great at the end of the day.

    10/10 highly recommended ❤️
