Hessian Boots for the Old Globe

Designer’s sketch for Hessian boots

We were given this sketch to use to create the military boots for the Old Globe’s summer season. To make them more versatile we were asked to design a way to add a tassel as needed for what ever production they might be used for in the future. We created a channel at the tip of the trim to allow that flexibility.

These are the finished boots. To keep them close to historically  accurate, the toes were made without the stiff boxing giving them a soft front. They really finished off the red, gold and white uniforms. On stage they gleamed. If this is the year to treat yourself to a pair of historic or fantasy shoes, we can make you something wonderful.
