Bohemond's Reimerswaal Side Laced Turn Shoe

The Reimerswall Side Laced Turn Shoe

Discovered in the submerged town of Reimerswaal, in Zeeland.  Dated 14th Century. This shoe appears in Stepping Through Time, by Olaf Goubitz on page 179 figure 9.  This shoe is from a family of shoes with many different variations all dating from the 11th century to the 15th century named Poulaine, Poulain, crackowes, or pike-toed shoe.

 The Reimerswaal side Laced Turn Shoe is a turn shoe.  Constructed and sewn by hand.   Linen thread is used for the edge to edge seem to connect the leather of the multiple piece upper shoe together and uses the edge / flesh seem 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.  The decorative chain stitch is also of linen.

Optional lugged, anti slip, or crepe soles are not offered for the Reimerswaal Shoe.
