This type of medieval boots was worn during around the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The point is longer according to the fashion of this time. People liked to wear poulaines, or shoes with very long toes. This fashion originated in Krakow, Poland, hence the name poulaines which can be translated as 'shoes according to Polish fashion'. The toes became longer and longer, and eventually laws came into force that limited the length of the shoes, for the safety of the wearers. These boots show a more modest toe length.
These boots are made from high quality vegetable tanned black leather and are very durable. They are suitable for late medieval reenactment. The soles have an inner layer of leather and an outer layer of rubber, so you have a firm grip on the ground and you do not slip easily unlike fully leather soles. At the heel, the soles are thicker and have a reinforcement so that they last longer.
At the back you can fasten the boots with leather laces. The leather flap can be worn according to your own wishes: folded or raised.

Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
