My husband loves these shoes!
I purchased several pairs of mens buckle shoes as part of costuming for a group of Alphorn musicians. Affixed with silver buckles, they look perfect, and with the addition of a simple orthotic insert, they are quite comfortable.
I've been reenacting for more than 30 years. Shoes have always the most troublesome item. These shoes are the best I have found, but I would like to see an offering of wider widths. Every manufacturer I have found, only makes narrow widths.
