All of our shoes are made in our shop in Lebanon, Indiana. If there is a color or pattern variation you desire, please contact us. This includes orthopedics. Our shoes are made from oak tanned top grain leather with the rough side out for greater durability. All shoes are stitched internally and soles are hand pegged for the longest life possible. Techniques and style are similar to those used to produce shoes during the 1860's. We also utilize a hickory shank as an arch support. We guarantee the quality of materials and workmanship for one year (excluding campfire or heat damage to the soles). We were the first to offer a guarantee on our shoes over 25 years ago, and continue to stand by our product. Our brogans are well known, and are also available from several of the major Civil War reproduction suppliers (sutlers) in the US, Canada, Germany, Japan, and Italy. We are very proud of our products, and you will be too!


Hob Nails- We are now offering Hob Nails on all of our shoes. We found a source for these that has been making them since the 1700's. Each nail has a 1/4" head with the correct pattern. We have these separately in packages of 30 (15 per shoe). They are also available with a total of 30 installed on new shoes as listed below (15 per shoe).
Please see below for details.

We have lasts for mens' size 3 1/2 - 15 , D and EEE widths. Yes we make half sizes.

We can also make any size larger as needed.

Sizes 14 and above are $10.00 extra.

Here's the Catch- We are very easy to deal with as far as "made to order" shoes and boots are concerned, but we have limits. Any shoes that are ordered with special additions such as double row pegging, hobnails, or other custom entities are subject to a 15% restocking fee on exchange for a different size (no refunds are allowed on custom made shoes and boots). Please be sure of your correct shoe size when ordering. Feel free to send in foot tracings, measurements, etc and use the measurement chart links found on this page. WE want it right the first time as much as YOU do. This does not apply to standard stock brogans without any special additions.

Break In Note- The normal breakin procedure is to wet the brogans on your feet and wear them for an hour or more. They will then conform to your feet nicely. Always let them dry naturally. Leather reacts to heat in bad ways, and you could find yourself with mis-figured brittle leather that will crack and break. Never (Never Ever) expose your leather shoes to any heat source to dry them or warm them up. The same goes for allowing your brogans near a fire or fire place. Any heat damage will totally VOID our footwear warranty. Once your shoes or boots are broken in, they can be treated with Neatsfoot Oil, Saddle Soap, Huberds Shoe Grease, or any other (Natural) leather dressing. We do not recommend Mink Oil or other chemical substance. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us during business hours.

Notes on our boots and shoes: Our soles are fastened to the shoes in the manner mentioned (wooden pegs, or stitching actually holding the soles on the shoe). Our footwear is NOT made in India or Pakistan.

Heel Plates,
Hand forged with countersunk holes. Needed for all leather heels when used outdoors. These greatly reduce the wear on the heel and extend the life. Not recommended for those who's use is strictly inside (Schools, Display, Living History inside of Historic Homes, etc).
Note- If you have Heel plates and want to attend an indoor ball, dance, school display, etc, you can cover the plates with "Duct Tape" to prevent slipping, marring floors, etc.

On all custom made shoes and boots, we reserve the right to either repair or replace (at our option) any defect that may arise within the warrantee period. All issues regarding fit need to be addressed immediately.
