Historical Accuracy: Landsknecht Tudor Pattens are historically documented overshoes. The word “Patten” refers to wooden soled overshoes. The wooden patten was mainly used out of doors, to protect the foot and 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, as regular shoes.
