Please note: The left Musketeer boot is cut the same as the left one. The boots are symmetrically (mutually substitutable), like the original boots in the 16th and 17th centuries. It happens sometimes that the butterfly (stirrup protection) is mounted in the opposite way over the ankle bend (talus) on one may think that two left (or right) boots were delivered in error. When this happens, please take off one butterfly and strap it in the right position on the boot again.

Musketeers in the history

A musketeer was an early modern type of infantry soldier equipped with a musket. Musketeers were an important part of early modern armies, particularly in Europe.

The Musketeers of the Guard were a junior unit of roughly company strength of the military branch of the Royal Household or Maison du Roi. They were created in 1622 when Louis XIII furnished a company of light cavalry  with muskets. Musketeers fought in battle both on foot (infantry) and on horseback (dragoons). Because of its junior status, the Musketeers were open to the lower classes of French nobility or younger sons from noble families whose oldest son served in the more prestigious units. The Musketeers soon gained a reputation for boisterousness and fighting spirit as the only way for social and career advancement was excelling at their task as mounted light dragoons.
