You can’t begin to look for Extant shoes with out consulting what has to be considered as the Shoe Bible ….. “ Stepping Through Time ” Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800 – By Olaf Goubitz

The Book is a fantastic shoe reference with pictures and patterns of shoes, but the biggest problem with the book is that it is sorted by Shoe Type and not by date, place & culture – the info is there,  its just hasn’t been cross indexed.

Any references from it will be put as Stepping Through Time By Olaf Goubitz – Page No:  - fig plate no.  for the shoes that are in this body of work.

 

Part 1:  covers from very early to 10th century 

Part 2:  covers from 11th century to 16th century 

Part 3:  covers from 17th century to 19th century
