Ladies, it's that time again, time for a new historical shoe style! I've been waiting ages to properly introduce you to our latest lady, "Gibson." You may have seen hints and teases, but here she is, quite officially, and opening for pre-order on February 15th.
"Gibson" Edwardian Shoes
- An excellent shoe for all occasions, 1900-1920
- Hand-stitched calf leather uppers, stylish cutouts, and gracefully pointed toe
- 2 in / 5.08 cm custom French heel
- Thick and durable sole
- Pre-order availability in black, ivory, and butterscotch
Gibson's story starts with a sad pair of original Edwardian shoes, a pair that was obviously well loved, but somehow, despite the condition, survived its last legs. It was an interesting shoe, this ancestor, made from fairly thin leather, with a very thick leather sole, and a stacked heel.

The final version of Gibson is a sturdy, respectable, and durable shoe that looks wonderful a-foot, and will serve you faithfully for years to come. The uppers are the best leather available, the lining is leather, and the sole is a tough, thick, man-made material that will *not* wear out in one season. Gibson will keep you comfortably on your feet all day, and stylishly clad in either the past or present.
