Medieval Peaked Boots (Poulaines)


Although documented since the High Middle Ages  peaked shoes and peaked boots (Poulaines) only really came into fashion in the late 14th century. This type of footwear was popular around 1450 that even so-called sumptuary laws were enacted in order to regulate their wearing and restrain the collateral excesses. In 1463 under the reign of Edward IV of England knights, Squires, Noblemen and other citizens were prohibited from wearing shoes with points exceeding 2 inches in length. This law was even further tightened in 1465, as cobblers and shoemakers were altogether banned from crafting shoes with points longer than 2 inches. 
Our boots can be freely adjusted and fastened with three buckles and riveted straps. Unlike their medieval forerunner models the soles of these medieval boots are made of grey hard rubber.
