Construction: The Medieval Latchet Turn Shoes are constructed and sewn by hand using the historically documented methodology. (No machine stitches) (No Nails) Linen thread is used for the edge to edge seam to connect the leather of the multiple piece upper shoe and uses the edge/flesh seam to attach the shoe to the hard vegetable tanned sole. The shoe is constructed inside out and turned right side out as the last step, and that is how they get the type name of “turn shoe.”
