Although heel shoes are depicted in ancient Egyptian murals on tombs and temples, the earlier mentions about human leg in heel shoes come from Hellenic times.

The wearing of heel shoes was booming in Europe in the 16th century and was lasted until the French Revolution. Then the low shoes were worn again, because the heel was a sign of wealth and well-being of the nobility. High heels were worn by Louis IX., Mary I Tudor, and Catherine de' Medici.

The ownership of heel shoes was associated with the ownership of horse, because this type of footwear was suitable for leg in the stirrup. The heel is back in vogue in the 19th century and they keep there to this day. The heels have also erotic function. Heel has an impact on posture of women - accentuates the bust and bottom.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Do you make custom-sized chain mail armor?

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
