18th Century Buckle Shoe

These shoes are hand sewn from top grain leather and feature a sewn sole and iron nailed heel.  The shoes are lined in leather as well, and feature a double thickness sole for durability.  Very comfortable and will require little break in period.  Latchets are 1.5 inches wide.  Please order one or two sizes SMALLER than you normally wear due to these shoes consistently running large on customers.  For example, if you wear a 12, but are are truly between 11.5-12, order a 10 in these shoes.  Also consider the thickness of the stockings you'll be wearing with the shoes. If your size happens to be out of stock at the time of order, please allow 4-6 weeks for your order to be completed.  As always, we are happy to answer questions about stock or status at

    Best Commercial Shoe Available

    South Union Mills' common buckle shoe is filling a niche left vacant by companies like Fugawee, providing affordable colonial-era footwear. The quality of these are improving with each run (I also ordered from their initial run previously), now featuring reasonable material quality, a stitched sole, pegged heel, and proper back seam. They have the right period look and will no doubt continue to improve with subsequent runs. You will need to cut the latchet straps to fit your buckle as they are currently (July 2022) cut wide. They are also listed off-size, as indicated in the product description, though I actually advise ordering a size and a half smaller: being a size 9, the size 8 was still a couple inches long in the toe. Overall, a good and comfortable shoe that fills a market need, offered by a company which is a pleasure to work with.
