Description

Kensington 18th century shoes offer all the sensibility of hard-wearing camp shoes, but are also lovely to look at and comfortable to wear.

Featuring our custom made French heels, and hand-sewn pointed toes, Kensingtons exhibit all the trademarks of shoes historically accurate for the American Colonial period, particularly the Revolutionary War years.

Why sacrifice style for practicality when you can have both? Dress your Kensies up with glittery paste buckles, or dress them down with a simpler buckle design (see latchet sizing information below). Whichever class you represent, camp follower to aristocrat, your feet will be as well-dressed as the rest of you.

Kensington do not come with buckles, but you can find our 18th-century shoe buckles in the accessories section. Please read our Buckle fitting instructions or watch our shoe buckle fitting video for more information.

    Too small

    Like the shoe but very small in size.. I wish I had orded a half size lager.I got a broad front on my foot.

    Hi Unn,
    If the shoe is tight around the widest portion of your foot, then the leather on the Kensington will stretch well in the area to give you a little more room. Please let us know if you have questions regarding stretching, as stretched shoes are unreturnable.

    Comfortable straight out of the box

    Finally put the buckles on and wore them, and they were completely comfortable all day! I need to tighten the buckle on the right foot but otherwise it was perfect. The heel is the perfect height for me and there was no rubbing or anything to make my feet hurt! I’m usually a size 9.5 in American Duchess but sometimes a 10, which is the case with these. I think a 9.5 would be too tight.

    Kensington review

    This was my first purchase from American Duchess so I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. The shoes are beautiful, historically correct and super comfortable. I stayed in my normal size and they fit perfectly. They also shipped super quick! I can't wait to wear these to events this season. Thank you!

    Kensington review

    Once I figured out how to fit the buckles properly (which was entirely a user error) these shoes were a dream to wear. They might actually be the most comfortable pair of heels I own. I found them to be true to size, but years of dance have left me more comfortable in snug-fitting shoes. I'm just hoping they release more colors soon!
