Kensington leather 18th century shoes offer comfort, style, and practicality all in one.

Constructed of 100% top-quality leather, with real Italian leather soles, Kensington is the perfect shoe for Revolutionary War reenactors, and features all the hallmarks of a historically accurate late Georgian shoe - hand-stretched pointed toe, custom-made Louis heels, and latchet closure ready to take our reproduction Valois, Fleur or Dauphine rhinestone buckles.

We don't believe you should have to sacrifice style when portraying middle class townswomen or camp followers!  Our deep red Kensingtons will compliment your eye-catching ensemble perfectly.

Kensington is historically accurate for the 1770s through 1780s, perfect for the American Revolution.

Buckles are not included as standard, but can be bundled at a discount, for more information/photos see our historical shoe accessories page.

Red Kensingtons will be returning to stock in early 2014.

Returns and exchanges: You may return shoes for absolutely any reason at all within 30 days of receipt for your choice of exchange, store credit or refund. See our Returns and Exchanges policy and Safe Shopping Guarantee for more information.
