The Devonshires are a leather 18th century shoe based on museum examples from the 1760s through 1780s. They're made of top-grade dyable leather, with a beautiful, smooth Italian leather sole for dancing, and are hard-wearing, water- and mud-proof, for even the toughest of outdoor re-enactments.
Pre-Order the Devonshires through August 10, and get the special $100 price. We're only making 200 of these shoes, so don't miss the chance to own one of only a couple hundred pair on the planet! Visit www.american-duchess.com to order.

My sister found this shoe company that makes beautiful 18th century shoes! They've just released their new "Devonshire" shoes, made of leather (they have the same style shoe in silk as well, the "Georgiana"). These are just so gorgeous!! They are on sale for the pre-order now! If you're like us, you LOVE historical gowns and these would just be perfection with a colonial dress. I think shoes really can make or break your look for historical accuracy!
