Viking Shoes For Men with Strap
Leather Shoes with Wolf Embossing
We understand why people avoid medieval shoes: they’re uncomfortable, usually completely flat and offer no grip. When it comes to designing a costume, having modern shoes seems like a small sacrifice to make for comfort and reliability, right? Well, at ArmStreet, we believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice beauty for comfort, so we set about creating a pair of sneakers that look fantastic, but still offer you similar comfort to modern footwear.
In order to make these the best shoes possible, we have applied a combination of modern and medieval shoemaking techniques. Instead of using medieval patterning, we have used modern shoe lasts to get the most comfortable shape possible for your foot. While these shoes still appear flat and medieval on the outside, they actually offer a little bit more hidden support on the inside. The very bottom of the shoe has a rubber outsole to give you a little bit more grip. Underneath this outsole, you’ll find leather fibreboard, a breathable orthopedic base, and a leather insole. This leads to a more comfortable shoe overall.
The embossing on these shoes is so noticeable because we have used a lovely leather with a slightly matte finish, which is flexible but strong. The designs are wolves, inspired by Viking art and knot-work, and created by our team of graphic designers. A contrasting leather is used to line the inside of the shoe, and machine stitching has been used throughout to make sure all of the seams are nice and tight. A strap of leather with knotwork embossing is used to hold the shoes closed - this does up with an attractive cast brass buckle.
To prolong the life of these shoes, don’t forget to treat them with respect! Let them dry between each wear, keep them free of dirt and mud when you’re not wearing them, and store them in a place where they won’t be squished. You can use “shoe trees” or even crumpled newspaper to help protect their shape.
Important note about measurements:
Please be accurate taking measurements – this vastly influences our ability to make an item that will suit you perfectly. Also, you should remember that natural leather is soft material and it will stretch, so when you receive your shoes it is normal that it fits very slim. It will adjust to the shape of your feet after one or two days of usage.

Important note: Brown, Natural and Cream leather shades may vary, as unfortunately, we can't control the color of leather which comes from our suppliers. Sometimes it may be darker or lighter, so if the tone of the leather is an important factor for you, please contact us before purchase to ascertain which color exactly we have in stock at the moment. Thank you for understanding.
