Kensington - Black Preworn Sample UK8.5

Out Of Stock Kensington - Black Preworn Sample UK8.5

Size  UK 8.5 (EU 41/42, US 10.5)

These shoes have been worn once for a few hours, and thus have the buckle holes pre-punched. 

A different wearer may need to make new holes, or use the existing ones.

They are also old stock, thus a size not usually available.

Era: 1760-1790.  George III, American Colonial, American Rev. War.


The Kensington shoe is a fantastic all-round period shoe, as at home in a camp as in a palace. The seams make them correct for the latter part of the 18th Century, and they can be dressed up or down depending on the buckle.   They have the pointed toe (hand-stretched) and Louis heel correct for the era.


Kensingtons, like most 18th Century shoes, need buckles.  The price is without buckles, but you can either choose from the above selection or order them separately.

These shoes would also work incredibly well as a modern smart shoe, with the mid height, wide based heel, and the ability to change the buckles for a different look.
