“Gudrun the Wolfdottir” Laced Viking Shoes
Leather embossed Viking shoes with wolves
When creating your Viking costume, don’t forget the addition of shoes! Can you imaging gear up for battle, lacing on your armor, preparing to fight… and then realizing that you’re not wearing shoes? They give us the ability to explore and walk on all sorts of terrain that our bare feet could not, and make a huge difference in everyday life… so why are they often overlooked when it comes to medieval costumes? We know why: they are often uncomfortable. With this in mind, we set out to create comfortable, awesome looking shoes.
These are made from a strong leather that is still soft and flexible and will mold to your foot to give you the perfect fit with time. It has a beautiful texture to it, and the surface will weather well with age if they are taken care of well and treated with respect. They are lined with contrasting leather and are well finished, and are a truly high-quality piece of footwear.
These shoes do up at the front with the help of leather lacing, giving them the slight appearance of awesome medieval sneakers. A knot work wolf design twists its way down the shoe, embossed deeply into the leather. This is an ArmStreet design, created by our in-house artists, especially for this collection.
We have used a combination of medieval and modern techniques in the creation of these shoes. The modern aspect is what adds to the comfort – modern shoe lasts. This means that they fit better around your foot than most medieval shoes. We have used a number of layers of material to make them less slippery and more supportive, just like modern shoes. These layers include a leather insole, leather fibreboard, a porous breathable orthopedic base, and a ribbed rubber outsole.
Important note about measurements:
Please be accurate taking measurements – that influences very much at our ability to make the item that will suit you perfectly. Also, you should remember that natural leather is soft material and it will stretch so when you are getting your shoes it is normal that it fits very slim. It will get your feet shape after one or two days of usage.

Important note: Brown, Natural and Cream leather shades may vary, as unfortunately we can't control color of leather which comes from our suppliers. Sometimes it may be darker or lighter, so if tone of the leather is 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.
