Historical Accuracy: Jorvik shoe or "York shoe" is also from Stepping through Time: Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800 and is similar to the Dorestad and Woodbridge shoe and is classified as an Overlap Closure (type 20) turn shoe with toggle.
Construction: Although the original is a turn shoe, this version of the Jorvik Viking Leather Soled Shoes has a McKay stitched leather sole and is identical in outward appearance to the tunnel stitch turn shoe. Featuring bone or horn toggles, the pattern of the shoe is almost exact, with a few minor changes for modern comfort. Each of these shoes is made of 3 to 4 oz top grain alum tanned cowhide leather. One seam is over stitched, and the toggles are sewn in and are easily moved to adjust fit.
