Keskiaikaiset nilkkamittaiset kengät, nyöritys edessä
Very sturdy reconstruction replicating the style of medieval shoes. This type of shoes was widespread in medieval Europe, from the late Dark Ages up to well into the late Middle Ages.
The shoes offered here are ankle-high and laced on the instep. The upper is machine-stitched to the sole. This modern method (also called McKay stitch) allows for substantially more stability and durability whilst maintaining the visual appearance of original historical turnshoes.
An ideal compromise for those who find turnshoes too pliant and unstable, yet still attach great importance to an authentic historical representation.
