Indulge in a piece of history with Flora Embroidered Boots, an exclusive reproduction of the intricate opera and evening boots popular in the late Victorian period. Expertly crafted with intricate botanical detailing, these stunning satin boots will take you back to an era of sophistication and finesse. Wear them with bustle and Belle Epoque attire from the 1870s to c. 1900, or with modern dress as a statement piece.

The Flora Boots are designed in collaboration with the Bata Shoe Museum. Every pair of shoes from the In Bloom collection benefits and supports The Bata Shoe Museum in their study, outreach, and conservation of historic footwear.

As a lace-up boot, Floras are very adjustable for a wide variety of ankle, calf, and instep measurements. The top of the Flora boots does not extend to the widest part of the calf muscle. Measurements scale a little based on size.

These measurements based on size 7.5:
Ankle range - 9 to 13 inches / 22.8 cm to 33 cm
Shaft height - 7.8 inch / 20 cm
Boot top range - 9.4 to 13.4 inches / 24 to 34 cm
Tongue width - 4.5 inch / 11.5 cm

Though the antiques were made in silk, our boots are made in a durable and cleanable polyester satin, the ideal choice for footwear built to last. Spritz your shoes with Shoe Brush and Polishing Cloth to keep them in good condition and looking swell.

I absolutely love them. They're very comfortable from the first moment I put them on and incredibly beautiful.

beautiful but on the small side

I typically wear a 8 in ad shoes but have a pair in 7.5 that I can wear with thin stockings. This felt tight right out of the box and though it did break in and is comfortable it's clearly a more snug fit than my other shoes
