Medieval Latchet Shoe
Found in "Shoes and Pattens" by
the Museum of London and "Stepping Through Time" by Olaf Goubitz, Carol
van Driel-Murry and Willy Groenman-van Waateringe this shoe is common
noblemen's and noblewomen's shoe during medieval times. There are five different length of point as
described in "Shoes and Pattens", 0 being a rounded toe and .5 being
grossly exaggeratedly long points. The 14th Century Poulaine,
crackowes, or pike-toed shoe is a great medieval
shoe with a .2 toe. The shoe is dated from 1300 to 1500 and fell in and out of favor
often. Sumptuary laws were written to govern the wearing of this shoe!
The original is a turn shoe, this version has a
McKay stitched leather sole and is identical in outward appearance to
the tunnel stitch turn shoe. Constructed of 2.5 to 3.5 oz top-grain
cowhide leather, leather laces, leather sole, majority of sewing is
machine done and mostly hidden, and the top edge is hand whip stitched
with linen thread. This shoe is always in stock!
The Medieval Latchet Shoe is perfect for Middle Ages, living history,
historical reenactments groups, LARP, and the SCA.
Discontinued and now for a super low price!
Available for Men and Women, the Medieval Latchet Shoe is available in
brown for $55.
