US Size

Dunmore 18th century shoes trimmed in white are the ideal materials, silhouette, and heel to pair with your late 18th century gown, from the Revolutionary War to the French Revolution.

Developed with input from Colonial Williamsburg, Dunmore is accurate for c. 1770 - 1790s, with a 2 inch / 5.08 cm Italian heel crafted after an extant shoe, a tapered toe and soft toe box, and latchet closure.

Dunmore 18th century shoes are made of pebbled leather resembling original, historical Moroccan leather. We've trimmed the edges with white twill tape and covered our custom-made Italian heels in white leather, just like originals. Inside you'll find linen lining with our historic trades stamp. These are truly special, exquisite shoes available in this colorway for a limited time only.

Dunmores do not come with 18th century shoe buckles. You may find our complete selection of 18th century shoe buckles in the accessories section. Please see our page on how to fit your buckles, or watch our shoe buckle fitting video for more information.

Dunmore review

Absolutely incredible. I bought a 1/2 size up so that I could add squishy pads under the balls of my foot and the heels and they feel amazing! I strongly recommend getting your true size if youre just going to wear them as is, my foot measures at 10 1/4 inches and if it werent for these thick pads plus stockings the shoes would be huge. According to the size chart I am a 10 but without pads I am a 9.5! Putting in the buckle was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. I asked for help and my husband was a lot more careful when watching the video, it only took 20 minutes (we were being super careful!) I love them just as much as my last AD shoes, and I will love my next pair just as much! I love AD so much!

Dunmore review

I just received these today and squealed when I opened the box. They are so elegant. Its one of those moments when you feel like the item you have is as close as to what our ancestors would have worn as you can get in todays day and age. The description was apt when it says will go with everything. I was a little worried that the oxblood color would clash with the silk rose-colored petticoat but together it looks like I stepped out of a historical painting. Donning this shoe was like putting on Cinderellas slipper, the perfect fit running true to size. Like it was made for my foot. Can not wait to wear these with all my 18th century outfits.

Dunmore review

These are my third pair of American Duchess shoes, and I continue to be really impressed by the quality, style and comfort! An absolute show stopper of a design, and paired with the Charlotte buckles they are so pretty and sparkly they make me smile when I put them on. Relatively easy to fit the buckles, and they fit like a glove, nice and secure, but not pinching my toes! (which I often have a problem with, my feet suffer in pointy shoes so I tend to avoid...) I haven't been able to wear them out yet, as I'm still working on my first 18th century ensemble, but I'm really looking forward to giving these a beauties a proper outing. Good job, I'm sure I'll be back for pair number four soon enough. :)

Dunmore review

I am absolutely thrilled to own these shoes! They look so elegant and beautiful while feeling very comfortable. I ordered according to my normal shoe size and they fit like a dream. Also, shipping was very fast - I expected them to take a good few weeks to arrive here in Europe, so I was very pleasently surprised when I found them arrive about a week after I placed the order! If you are unsure, I absolutely recommend buying these shoes! I LOVE them already and find them even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures! :-)

Dunmore review

These shoes are absolutely A M A Z I N G. I have yet to wear them for a prolonged period of time (in fact, they only arrived today), but already I can tell that they are going to be wonderfully comfortable. I bought them a half size bigger than I normally would, just to be on the safe side and they seem to be fitted perfectly. They are both elegant and sturdy in construction, and I adore the colour. I also have to mention that the shipping was so fast! I live in New Zealand, and despite it being the Christmas post rush, it still only took 8 days from the time I ordered them (on a weekend, no less) until they arrived. Thank you so much, ladies, for such beautiful shoes that I just can't wait to wear with my gowns!
