Gorgeous, very traditional Edwardian field boots with a flared, sculpted heel, dramatic pointed toe, and a lace-up closure. What sets these beauties apart is the unusual metal accent at the heel tap and the lush, rich gray/olive tone of the leather. Beautiful!

Good antique; these boots are nearly 100 years old. There is distressing, variegated wear, and some scuffing to leather, though it is supple and uncracked. The silk lining is beginning to fray. The shoelaces (original!) are broken on one boot. These are in wearable though aged condition.
