A turn-sewn buskin in a pattern after findings from Schleswig near Haithabu, completely turn-sewn by hand! This shoe shows many details of a historically correct buskin from the era between 1000-1250 AD. The seam on the instep, the triple toggle closure and the round heel make this shoe perfect for any contemporary garment.
The robustness of shoes according to historical patterns may not meet the modern requirements!
They are quite sensitive to asphalt, concrete stones and gravel. These floor coverings did not exist in the Middle Ages!
we therefore recommend wearing pattens (medieval wooden overshoes), insoles or to retrofit them with rubbersoles at the shoemaker of your choice.
