Theatrical Shoes and Boots by American Duchess. Beautiful, accessible, and versatile historical shoes and boots made specifically for theater, stage, and productions. All of our theatrical designs feature historical styling paired with quick rigging where possible. Tall theatrical boots feature zippers and elastic laces, 18th century theatrical shoes have hidden elastic gussets, velcro latchets, and falsie slide buckles, and our theatrical character shoes cleverly use elastic and flexi soles. Quick rig hardware is available to purchase too. New styles of theatrical shoes and boots are added seasonally - perfect for dance, ballet, ballroom, performance, Broadway, university and community theater, extras and chorus.

About Us

American Duchess is a small, historical, reproduction footwear company based in Reno, Nevada, USA. It was born from one costumer's inability to find elegant, affordable, comfortable and historically accurate footwear. Partnering with a community of hundreds of frustrated costumers around the world, we now manufacture a growing line of beautifully hand crafted Renaissance, 18th Century, Regency, Edwardian and Victorian shoes as well as reproduction shoe buckles and silk stockings.
