Historical Accuracy: Featured in Stepping Through Time by Olaf Goubitz, Carol van Driel-Murry and Willy Groenman-van Waateringe this shoe is from Dordrecht and Reimerswaal and featured page 214 figure 6f; this shoe is common nobleman's and noblewoman's shoe for the 14th through 15th Centuries and is a quintessential middle ages shoe from medieval times.
Construction: Medieval Ankle Buckle Turn Shoes are constructed and sewn by hand using the historically documented methodology. (No machine stitches) (No Nails) Linen thread is used for the edge to edge seam to connect the leather of the multiple piece upper shoe and uses the edge/flesh seam to attach the shoe to the hard vegetable tanned sole. The buckle straps are attached using a tunnel stitch. (no rivets) The shoe is constructed inside out and turned right side out as the last step and that is how they get the type name of “turn shoe.”
