Viking Shoes "Skjold", Brown
Viking Boots Skjold Brown
These Viking boots pattern correspond to findings in Haithabu from 800-1100 A.D. The sole is raised up at the heel and phases out into a triangular shape which was typical of Viking shoes. The shaft goes up over the ankle and the boots are fastened with four leather tabs and toggles. The soles have been fixed with nails.
The strength of shoes according to historical patterns may not meet the modern requirements!
They are quite sensitive to asphalt, concrete stones and gravel as these floor coverings did not exist in the Middle Ages!
we therefore recommend wearing pattens (medieval wooden overshoes), insoles or to re fit them with rubber soles..
