These are an accurate reproduction of an early 19th century "Jefferson Bootee". A bootee refers to an article of footwear that is taller than a shoe (ie, buckled shoes), but is shorter than riding boots. They are also laced in the front, as opposed to slip on or buckled. Thomas Jefferson famously wore laced bootees to his inauguration as a political statement wherein he signified breaking away from the European nobility by not wearing buckles on his shoes. These shoes gained the name Jefferson Bootees from that point forward. Ours are made to exacting detail based on original images with attention paid to quality and durability as well. The fit is accurate, but add a half size if you wear inserts such as orthotics or if you plan to use thick socks. Standard width is E. Wide are EE.
