Historical Accuracy: Baltic Viking Boots are a revision pattern (this boot did not exist as shown) but is very similar to boots that did. Based on the Groningen find documented in Stepping through Time: Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800 and is similar to the "York Shoe", Dorestad, and Woodbridge shoe and is classified as an Overlap Closure (type 20) shoe. Found in Groningen and Haithabu, Netherlands, Denmark, and northern Germany, the settlements were Viking or heavily settled by Vikings. The finds date from the 9th and 10th centuries.
Construction: Baltic Viking Boots are welted and set up for modern comfort with modern soles for modern feet. This boot is designed for martial combat. The Baltic Boot is made of 3 to 4 oz top grain cowhide leather, leather mid-soles, and crepe neoprene soles that provide traction. All sewing is hand stitched, and the legs of the boot are held by toggles looped through slits in the side of the shoe to keep the boot closed. This boot is 12 inches tall from the floor. The top edge is hand whip stitched with linen thread.
