Historical Accuracy:  Roman Infantry Caligae Boots date from the 1st Century BC to 120 A.D and are from the European Continent at Vindolanda in Britain as well as the Northern Provinces.  This style is shown in Stepping Through Time by Olaf Goubitz, page 364 (fig 51 and 52) and is classified as a Fell and Allendale soldiers boot.
Construction:  The original Roman Infantry Caligae Boots are stitched and/or nailed shoes.  This version has a McKay stitched leather sole and is identical in outward appearance to the tunnel-stitch shoe.  The front seam is a period edge-to-edge saddle stitch with the threads out.  Made of 5 to 6 oz top grain vegetable grain cowhide leather and comes standard with vegetable tanned leather soles. It features a Roman edge-to-edge, sewn-grain-side-out seam up the front or vamp of the shoe and has modern lacing.
