Women's Balmoral Style Boot, appropriate for wear from the 1860's into the 20th century. This boot is made in the U.S.A., and features a 1" Heel, Leather Sole, Steel Shank and cotton toe lining. This boot provides a removable insole for custom orthotics. A good choice for those of you that have problem feet, but want a period looking boot.

I wrote a review almost a year ago and I am still happy with these boots. I've had some work done on the soles because of the way I walk but they've just gotten more comfortable. I've worn them from 9 to 5 five days a week and they still look good and have held up in rain and snow.

I work full time in a historic site representing 1914 rural life and although I can find suitable footwear for this period it was hard to find something comfortable and durable enough for daily wear. After three months of wear the Balmoral Boot is still comfortable, fits my orthotic perfectly, and seems very durable. They've even proven watertight during heavy rain. They were horribly expensive since the Canadian dollar was at a very low exchange rate at the time and I had to pay duty and shipping too but it was worth it for working painfree.
