After months of work, finally the dream of our 18th century silk shoes has come to fruition. The final sample pair arrived this morning and are absolutely beautiful!
The Pre-Sale opens Friday, April 1, 2011. It’s no April Fool’s joke, I assure you! Get ready, because pre-orders will open at midnight PST (West Coast USA) on www.American-Duchess.com. Don’t wait! Those who participate in the sale will receive the special $85 price and be guaranteed their size. For more information about how the pre-order works, click here.
Please Spread The Word
I must humbly ask for your assistance in getting the word out about these shoes. We have to pre-sell a minimum 100 pairs of shoes in order to run the style. If we fall short, everyone who has ordered will unfortunately be refunded 100% and there will be no pretty silk shoes. With your help, though, we can achieve the goal and there will be beautiful shoes for everyone!
Please feel free to use the photos from this post to show your friends, costume societies, and re-enactor groups. Facebook, blog, tweet, share, repost, and help us get this line of Historical Footwear going! The future of American Duchess Historical Footwear includes 18th c. dyable leather heels, Regency slippers, Edwardian pumps, and other styles of shoes that you the readers want, need, and can help design.
|A pretty profile. Wear the latches closed with shoe buckles, or rhinestone slide buckles, available in our shop in four styles.|

|Yay for versatility! Instead of buckles, loop the latchets and tie a pretty bow.|
