Fall Pre-Order is OPEN!

American Duchess F/W2018 Pre-Order is open Aug 30 – Sept 20 at AmericanDuchess.com

Ladies! It’s time for NEW historic shoes and boots! It’s “go big or go home” this Fall and we’ve poured our hearts and soles into creating many gorgeous new designs for you, plus restocking some old favorites with a few improvements to make them even better. Here’s what we’ve got for you this Fall…


Camille Edwardian Boots in burgundy/black and black/black. Velveteen and Leather – real lace up closure (no zips!), and the sexiest 2 inch French heel. Oo la la!
We call these stunners “Smexy Boots” in the Batcave, truly gorgeous reproduction late Victorian / Edwardian boots in velveteen and leather. The Camilles, named after Camille Clifford, have a 3 inch heel for you historical-height-lovers, a lace-up closure over a 3.5 – 4 inch tongue for plenty of adjustability, and greatly improved ankle and calf silhouette for a good, curvaceous fit.

(1890 – 1925)

$179 ($199)


Mae Edwardian shoes in black suede paired with smooth black leather. Real button closure and gorgeous 2.25 inch French heel. YUM.

In our range of Edwardian stunners this season we have “Mae,” the prettiest Mary Janes with a twist. Mae is done in suede and smooth leather with a diagonal split strap with button closure. We’ve used our new 2.25 inch French heel – oh so elegant – and pointed-toe last. Wear these with absolutely everything from 1900 – 1925, Lolita, Goth, or modern apparel.

(1900 – 1925)

$140 ($160)
Theda “Skeletor” Oxfords in black and ivory – gotta love that ribcage vamp paired with 2.25 inch French heels and pointed toes.

Also coming along in the Edwardian category is Theda, our faithful reproduction of a Pierre Yantorny design from the early 1920s. We lovingly call these shoes “Skeletor,” as they have a distinctly spooky “ribcage” design on the vamp, paired with our 2.25 inch French heel and an adjustable lace-up closure. Wear Theda for anything 1900 – 1925, Lolita, Goth, Steampunk, or just because they’re so ridiculously cool.

(1900 – 1925)

$145 ($165)
Vienna Congress Boots in patina brown. These are amazing Civil War era boots with 1.5 inch heels, elastic gussets, and delightful satin bows.


We’re proud to introduce our latest mid-Victorian style, the “Vienna” Congress Boots. Popular from the 1850s all the way through the 1880s, these elastic-sided boots are easy to pull on, perch on our 1.5 inch Victorian heel, and even feature a sweet little satin bow, a trendy Victorian touch. Wear the Viennas with any Victorian day wear, particularly Civil War ensembles.

(1850 – 1880s)
$160 ($180)

The all-new Tavistock – revised with easier closure, leather soles, and improved fit.


Our most popular and original Victorian Button Boot, Tavistock, is back for round two, sporting some tweaks and improvements to the design. Now with easier-to-use button closure and real leather soles, you’ll enjoy improved fitment through the ankle and tops as well. Don’t forget your button hook!

(1890 – 1925)
$179 ($199)

Restock! Fraser (Black), Pompadour (White), and Renoir (Black) are coming back into stock and are available to reserve now.

Restock Alert!
Let’s celebrate the return of some of our most popular designs! Pompadour (White), Fraser (Black), and Renoir (Black) are all available to order again. Fraser has been improved with a new leather lining, and Renoir’s button closure is easier to use and the fit of the ankle has been improved. Don’t miss your chance at three of our most desirable styles!
