This historical leather shoe is in stock, ready to ship.
A common fastening for ankle boots were leather laces that could be replaced if broken. This style of 3-lace boots was common and probably worn throughout the middle ages.
These boots are 100% leather and have 3 fastening straps. They would have been made in the 'turn-shoe' method in period , but our shoes have a flat sole which works better for larger feet.
These shoes can be documented to the 11th century, and would have been worn by many of the contemporary peoples such as the Vikings, Saxons, Normans, Jutes, and Visigoths.
This is a period style shoe with documentation found in Stepping through Time (Archaeological Foodwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800 by Olaf Goubitz.) This academic book documents actual medieval shoes found preserved and discusses historical construction techniques. This particular shoe is found on page 93 of the 2007 paperback edition. The shoe is depicted in figures 1 and 2.
