Historical Accuracy: Each Medieval High Buckle Riding Boot has 10 buckles modelled after The Museum of London's Dress Accessories page 88. Based on a find from Konstanz, Germany, boot with predominately attached buckle (Schnack 1996), the Medieval High Buckle Boot is dated 13th through 16th Century all throughout Europe. This boot appears in Stepping Through Time by Olaf Goubitz on page 215, figure 7.
Construction: Made of top grain cowhide, oak tanned leather sole with a nailed heel, no visible machine stitch except for the buckles and straps where all sewing is machine over-stitched and visible. My version is partly a turn shoe construction. Linen thread is used for the edge to edge seam, constructed and sewn by hand. I use a McKay stitch to attach the shoe to the hard vegetable tanned sole which gives an appearance of the Coppergate sole attachments. A leather heel has been added by request of the Equestrian community.
