These comfortable cloth shoes are sometimes known as Chinese flats or Mary Janes. They feature sturdy blue cloth uppers and rubber soles. They are fully lined with a soft cotton fabric. The cloth strap goes across the top of your foot and is secured with a little buckle. This makes the shoe somewhat adjustable for various widths.
They are available in Christmas red, navy blue, midnight black, pink, light blue and white. These are also popular as summer shoes.
Please note that the blue color may vary from the picture shown on your monitor. Some batches of these shoes are more vivid than others and are a deeper blue.
These shoes go well with most time periods and garb styles, as well as everyday clothing. We also have velvet shoes, embroidered shoes and brocade shoes. See our other listings for these styles.
These are the basic shoes that are great for a medieval peasant or non-noble, for a LARP costume, or for reenactment outfit. For a more elegant look for Renaissance and later period costumes, we also sell brocade shoes and velvet shoes. There are also black or red canvas shoes without straps which come in larger sizes. See the other listings for these shoe options.
When we researched shoes and shoe sizes, we found that there are no standards for shoe sizes. Different manufacturers may have sizes that vary between them. There is also no standard shoe size conversion chart. We have developed the following chart through long experience with selling these shoes. To be sure of one's shoe size, the shoe really should be tried on.
Trying on shoes is encouraged, but please do not wear them outdoors until you know that they fit. (We reserve the right to refuse shoe returns if they display visible wear or abuse.) If your shoes do not fit, please call for a return authorization number, and ship them back to us. Let us know what shoe size you would like in return. You are responsible for shipping costs, but we will gladly exchange shoes as many times as necessary until you are satisfied!
The Blue Cloth Shoes with straps are available in metric sizes 35 through 41, which is ladies size 5 to ladies size 11 or men's size 9. To translate this to American sizes, ladies add 30 to their regular shoe size and gentlemen add 32 to their regular show size. For example, a ladies American size 8 would be a metric size 38. A Gentleman's size 9 would be a metric size 41. See the table below.:
