Civil war re-enactors, cowboy action shooters, and Victorian gentlemen all need a good pair of boots or shoes to complete their outfit. Men’s Victorian shoes and boots were either lace up or button up with a low heel, pointed toe, and a mid to high calf depending on if you were a gentlemen or western man.
Some men wore shoe spats to cover clean shoes. Men also wore boots, similar to cavalry boots or early Western boots, to do rugged outdoor work.
