Irish shoe is derived from the "Stepping through Time,
Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800" and is
classified as a Slip on Shoe (type 90). This shoe is
representative of many
similar types of shoes dating from 2nd C to the Migration period.
It's similarity to Roman shoes of the 2nd through 4th centuries is
striking. The Irish Shoe
is the perfect generic late Roman, Romano Celt and Dark Ages
Although the original is a one piece turn shoe, where the sole and
vamp are the same, this version is McKay stitched
( which is identical in outward appearance to many ) and 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
cow hide leather or equivalent, comes with leather soles,
vamp sewing is period edge to edge. This shoe is always in stock!
The Irish Shoe is perfect for Viking, Irish, Dark Ages, Roman, and
Romano Celt, living history,
historical reenactments groups and the SCA.
Discontinued and now for a super low price!
Available for Men and Women, the Irish Shoe is available in
brown for $45.
Sole choices no longer available for the Irish Shoe.
