Viking Shafted Shoes
Product number: 2573
Good quality Viking Age shoes in vegetable tanned, natural colored cow hide. The thick and tough leather sole is fixed with stable nails. Wear them as boots, or with the shaft folded down. The leather is untreated and can be treated all depending on usage, environment and climate.
Historical shoes obviously do not compare to modern shoes in terms of durability or comfort. Avoid using them a lot on modern surfaces, such as concrete, asphalt, gravel and so forth that can wear down the sole. It is also possible to fit them with insoles to increase durability, comfort and isolation from water and cold. Vikings would have traditionally used thicker wool socks.
