These 12th Century shoes are based on styles of footwear common during the period. They are based on patterns taken from shoes that were excavated from along the Thames River in London. These medieval shoes have been detailed in Shoes and Pattens: Medieval Finds from Excavations in London. Nearly 1500 shoes were excavated, covering the time period 1150 to 1450. This provides a large sample of medieval shoes and boots, many of similar style, from which a number of conclusions can be drawn.
**These boots are true to US sizes. Order your normal shoe size when ordering. They are also made for a regular width foot. If you have a wider foot, we can stretch up to an EE width, but you have to tell us when ordering.**
