 Extant Shoe Finds - part 2

 Top Row - Cut shoe from Stockholm Sweden 11th -  12th centuries

 Bottom Row - complete leather shoe with hammer-head shaped toe. Decorated with slashes England: London 1550 AD, Medieval Leather Shoe, 15th century St Albans England, Childrens boots with decorative cutting Stockholm Sweden 11th -  14th centuries

 


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

3 Medieval leather shoes - The shoe shown here on the left has openwork designs cut into the leather dates from the early 13th century. The shoe on the foreground with an engraved and scraped pattern of leaves is from the late 14th century. The shoe on the top right has a low-cut front and a long pointed toe. This style of shoe is known as ' poulaine' which means 'Polish'. The toe, as much as 10cm long (4in), was usually stiffened with stuffing of moss or hair, this style was particularly fashionable in London in the 1380s.

Leather shoe of the late 14th century excavated from the riverside at St. Paul's. The large hole on the front of the shoe, was caused by wear from a bunion which is a swelling of the joint associated with displacemnet of the big toe. This condition was worsened by narrow, pointed or badly fitting footwear, which were very fashionable at this time.
