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 of these boots is made of 3 to 4 oz
cow hide leather, leather sole, all sewing is
The boot is 10 inches tall from the top of the foot.
Instructions will be included to help you set the
medieval boot up as either a type 35 toggled boot or type 60 laced boot. If your would
toggle type 35 version, you will be given instructions for making your own
toggles and fitting them as toggles are not included.
The medieval boot is perfect for middle ages living history,
100 years war, war of the roses, historical reenactments groups, LARP, and the SCA.
