Swordsman’s “Dragon” shoes
HEMA sport leather fencing footwear
Spectacular balancing between historical references, fantasy realms and modern technologies is the favourite hobby of ArmStreet design departments. Backed up by years of fencing experience of the members of the crew themselves alongside the feedback from the wide net of fellow fencers, we are intrigued to introduce to you the new line of footwear.
The short "Dragon" shoes definitely take your swordplay to a new level both indoors and outdoors. The cornerstone of this series is to boost your sword practice with comfortable fencing footwear with extra features. Among them are a sole that provides a great grip on most surfaces, an ankle support that doesn't restrict lunges, soft incerts, and a 3D mesh lining. All in one!
Those cheeky shoes' eye-catching appearance perfectly suits fantasy or sci-fi costumes and offers you lots of colour options. However, you would be surprised how easily they blend into a historically inspired look when ordered in black or brown leather with matching colour accents.
These boots are the shortest version of three calf lengths available. Their design and intended use are definitely influenced by the concept of "fight and travel" when you have to go from the SCA event to LARP and then practice in a friendly HEMA club. This short and colourful “Sport” version is influenced by the world of modern historical fencing more than by anything else.
Made of natural leather with bright dyed soft leather accents they are not only durable and pleasant to touch but also very comfortable. The wide shoe tongue is responsible for a better fit for various feet. The name of the line is partly inspired by the scaled pattern of the rubber outsole that supports your jumps and lounges with a never-failing grip both on the wooden floor and natural surfaces. The shoes feature soft supinators for better amortisation, however, we suggest avoiding fencing on modern surfaces such as asphalt and gravel as the outsole might be a bit too soft for those. In fact, the springy sole material is suposed to be used on modern surfaces too, but we know that fencers could be harsh to their gear.
