These authentic shoes will complete your Viking look. They will be a reliable and cozy footwear for any SCA event or medieval occasion. These shoes are made of natural leather with natural leather lacing.
Period leather soles can be reinforced with the modern anti-slip rubber outsoles to prolong the service time of your loved shoes. This option is free, just mention it in the comment to your order.
Historical reference: Leather-working technology was quite primitive in medieval times and natural stretching of leather was commonly used in shoemaking to get feet`s shape. Outsole (just like in our shoes) was made of much harder leather to protect feet from injuries and boot from premature wear. It is reliably sewed to the boot and thread is hidden into a cut in outsole to prevent it from fraying. Additional glue soaking protects the thread and makes it stronger.
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.

I know you do custom sizing but would you be able to go up to a US 14? and does the rubber sole and subtracting the embossing cost any extra?
We do custom sizing, but normally the biggest size we can accommodate is US 13 men`s (foot length 11 7/8).Please let us know your measurements so we could send them to our shoemaker and see if it is doable.
These are the second pair of boots I have bought from Armstreet. They just arrived today a couple of weeks before I expected them to. Snug fit that will stretch, beautiful leather and top-notch craftsmanship. I'm very pleased with my purchases and my wife likes her stuff, too! Thanks Armstreet! My viking costume is now complete.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences, Matt! We are glad you like the shoes! Thank you for choosing us and always welcome back!
