The unique styling of Elizabethan and Renaissance heeled shoes is brought to life with our Mary. A tie closure, open sides, and a low, practical heel makes these late Renaissance era shoes perfect for both indoor and outdoor fairs and events.
Mary is accurate for c. 1580 through the 1630s. This type of shoe represented the return to heeled styles and was the pinnacle of fashion for the nobility in its early days, but soon became the shoe for everybody. You'll see very similar styles peeking from beneath the hems of petticoats in paintings and prints of this era.
This design was worn by women and men alike, and we have it available in men's sizing, called Marlowe. There is crossover between the men's and women's size ranges. Please note that women's standard width is "B" and men's standard width is "D."
