Ankle Shoe

800AD to 1200AD
£45.00 adult sizes 4-13
£40.00 adult sizes 1-3
Style Code: DAM

This type of shoe covers nearly four centuries in history but was gradually going out of fashion in late Norman times. It has a 3.5mm (1/7in) thick sole and a drawstring. It is tough but not quite as hard-wearing as our hand-stitched shoes and makes an acceptable starter model. 
Colours: varying shades of brown, depending on what we have in stock. The colour will range from saddle-tan, to medium brown to dark brown. You are welcome to state your preference on the order form and I will try to meet it, but instant availability of these shoes means that you ought to be prepared to accept whatever colour I happen to have in stock.

Extras

Available with all our Footwear

Heel Cushions (Price GBP 5.00):

These are modern leather covered latex wedges that you can wear inside your shoes. They help to prevent painful heels if you are not used to walking in flat-soled shoes. As they are loose you can order as many pairs as you like to wear with other shoes as well. In this case please specify for what shoe-size you are ordering.

Available with our hand-stitched Footwear

Small Heels (Price: GBP 20.00):

These consist of a 6mm thick leather patch tunnel-stitched to the heel of the shoes. These heels are fully authentic and easily replaceable. We strongly recommend them as they prolong the life of your shoes, especially if you intend to walk on tarmac a lot.

Second Sole Layer (Price: GBP 30.00):

This is a second leather sole stuck onto the original sole layer. A small heel can also be added.

Vamp-stripes (Price: GBP 25.00 per row):

This is in early medieval footwear a strip of silk embroidery  that runs down the front of the shoe. It looks very elegant, makes your foot look slimmer and many shoes were decorated like that (check the description of your chosen style). The embroidery is in a herringbone-pattern and comes in many colours. Shoes can be decorated with up to three parallel strips, often in different colours, or chessboard patterns. Please specify when ordering or ask us for advice.  If you order more than one row of embroidery we will consider this a personal adjustment and the shoes will be excluded from our returns policy.
