The Medieval boot is derived from the Stepping through Time: Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800 and is classified as a front laced (Type 60) and a instep toggle fastening (Type 35). Found in Dordrecht, Maastricht, and Vlaardingen, Konstanz, and most of Europe, this is a classic 14th Century boot. The Medieval Boot is representative of many similar types of boots dating from 1150 to 1500. It is very similar to the Konstanz buckle boot (Type 85). The Medieval boot is the perfect generic nobleman's boot of the Middle Ages.
The original was a turn shoe, this boot uses a McKay stitched sole which is identical in outward appearance to the period tunnel stitch. The pattern of the shoe is almost exact, with a few minor changes for modern comfort. Each is made of 3 to 4 oz cow hide leather, leather sole with heel, all sewing is machine overstitched. The boot is 10 inches tall from the top of the foot.
The medieval boot up as a Type 35 toggled boot and easily changed to a Type 60 laced boot.
Improved for 2016! Double-stitched joint from vamp to upper and a 3/8" leather heel has been added.
The medieval boot is perfect for Middle Ages living history, Hundred Years War, War of the Roses, historical reenactments groups, LARP, and the SCA.
Available in brown.
