Bronte 19th Century Slippers are gorgeous reproductions made of fine kid leather, lined in linen, and perfectly period for late Regency, Romantic Era, Early Victorian, and Mid-Victorian costume.

Accurate for the 1820s through the late 1850s, Brontes are made with the low, flat silhouette and delicate construction of original shoes, making them perfect for the ballroom, tea parties, and dinner engagements. Interior lacing loops allow for ribbons to be worn around the ankle, and shoe clips and rosettes may be added for an extra, unique touch.

Note: Bronte slippers are made according to original antique methods. They lack toe counters (toe boxes) and are intended to fit snugly with light stockings. If you have wide feet, intend to wear thick stockings, or need extra room in the toes, we recommend ordering a half size larger than your usual size. Brontes are not recommended for regular outdoor use or wet conditions.

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.
