Cavalier Style Boot



The Cavalier boot is similar to the SCA style boot except that it is usually above the knee in height and can be rolled down to below the knee. The Cavalier boot represents boots worn from 1300's to the 1600's in western Europe by wealthy Lords and Ladies and is an excellent medieval or renaissance boot.  The cavalier boot can also be bucketed down to create a late period renaissance boot or pirate like swashbuckler boot.

With your Cavalier boot, ankle laces or buckles give a much more finished look. Garters are recommended as these boots are soft and tend to sag around the ankle. Garters also provide a more kept look while holding the boot up over the knee. A round or square toe generally looks best.

The Cavalier boot is constructed with 4.5 to 6 oz top grain chromium tanned cow hide leather, artificial mid-soles, and crepe soles.

The Cavalier boot is a superb fighting boot, although steel toes are not an option. The heel is double thick to give good ankle support and I recommend ankle laces or a buckle for the Cavalier boot for fighting. Depending on your armor, you can strap armor over the campaign boot and the leather never gets damaged. Cavalier boots are most popular for Fencing.

Cavalier style boots begin at $325.00 for both Lords and Ladies.  (See Options below)

Campaign Style Boot


Campaign Boots are the extra-tall version of the Cavalier Boot, usually waist high, but not more than 32 inches tall.

The Campaign boot is a superb fighting boot, although steel toes are not an option.  The heel is double thick to give good ankle support and I recommend ankle laces or a buckle for the Campaign boot for fighting.  Depending on your armor,  you can strap armor over the campaign boot and the leather never gets damaged.

Campaign Boots begin at $375.00 for both Ladies and Lords; measurements will determine any additional charge due to materials needed. Large men should expect a minimum cost of $400.00.  (See options below)

Mary Rose Shoe

The Mary Rose Shoe is constructed of 2.5 to 3 oz top-grain cowhide leather, leather laces,  crepe sole, artificial mid-soles,  hard rubber heel, and all sewing is machine overstitched.  This shoe is always in stock!
