Medieval Leather Boots “Armor-Bearer”
Handmade medieval lace-up boots
Admirable soft leather boots will be perfect finding if you are looking for a complement to your medieval costume of a knight or noble squire. The design of these shoes is based on XV century style.
Boots are made of soft leather. Its flexibility ensures that your leg can move freely when you are having any type of fighting practice whether it be wrestling, sword-fighting or archery.
These boots have modern soles that ensure a secure grip and are perfect for different types of activity - from usual walking to dancing, or reenactment medieval fighting. They consist of several layers: leather insole, leather fiber board, porous breathable orthopedic base and ribbed rubber outsole. This model cannot be made with authentic soles, but one can find many other historically accurate models with leather soles in our store.
In early medieval times, shoes were sewn from two parts or cut from one piece of material. By the XV century standard shoe manufacture became more complex and patterns included more details. Made of numerous leather pieces, shoes had more complicated shape and fitted greatly.
Outsole (just like in our shoes) was made of much harder leather to protect feet from injuries and boot from early wear-out. In our boots, it is reliably sewed to the upper part. The thread is soaked with glue which makes it stronger and then is hidden into a cut in the outsole to prevent it from fraying.
Important note about measurements:
Please take your measurements attentively - your carefulness will help us make your shoes perfect.
Also, you should remember that natural leather is soft material and it will stretch so when you are getting your new pair it is normal that it fits very slim. It will get your feet shape after one or two days of usage.
