The shoes are standard width and feature a hard, thick leather sole, perfect for use in camp or inside a fine home. The lachets should be secured with a buckle or a simple ribbon.

These are reliable, well made shoes. Personally, I could use a little more room in the toe box, but this is not the first pair of these shoes I’ve purchased! There are multiple colors, so I have multiple pairs! I recommend a size up from the standard you’d normally get, and they’ll last for several seasons of hard wear. Great product, great price!
These are even nicer in person than I expected from the picture. They fit very true to size and feel wonderful on my feet. The leather molded almost instantly to fit, and fitting the buckles was easier than I anticipated.
I just wish Samson Historical made 19th-century button boots!
