Very sturdy reconstruction replicating the style of medieval shoes. This type of shoes was widespread in medieval Europe, from thelate Dark Ages up to well into the late Middle Ages.
The shoes offered here are ankle-high and laced on the instep. The upper is machine-stitched to the sole. This modern method (alsocalled McKay stitch) allows for substantially more stability and durability whilst maintaining the visual appearance oforiginal historical turnshoes.
An ideal compromise for those who find turnshoes too pliant and unstable, yet still attach great importance to an authentichistorical representation.
– Sturdy upper leather (approx. 2 mm thick)
