Historical Accuracy: Found in both Shoes and Pattens by the Museum of London and Stepping Through Time by Olaf Goubitz, Carol van Driel-Murry, and Willy Groenman-van Waateringe. These are replicas with attention to historical accuracy and will meet standards of most reenactment groups. The word “Patten” refers to wooden soled overshoes. The wooden patten was mainly used out of doors, to protect the foot with shoe against mud, cold and sharp debris. Up to 1500, the roads were rarely surfaced, and in wet weather, people had to trudge through the muck. In the Late Middle Ages, pattens were worn as overshoes, and later, like regular shoes.
