These men's shoes have a rounded toe caps and are attached to the foot over the instep/bridge with leather straps and rectangular brass buckles. The sole is made of leather, the bottom thin layer is made of anti-slip rubber, because the smooth leather would be too slippery and so dangerous for the wearer. These shoes were made on request of a customer as Landsknecht shoes. Since we could not find any relevant source and think these shoes fit rather in the 17th century, we call them “17th century men's shoes”.More information

Care of the 17th century men's shoes
The shoes are treated with balm containing beeswax. The shoes are made of genuine leather. You can treat them with various shoe care products. The balm softens the leather soft and waterproofs it. Moreover, it makes the leather darker. If you do not have the balm, you can also use oil for leather or a normal shoe polish. The shoes polish can easily tone the leather color and cover minor imperfections (e.g. scuffed shoe tips).
Note on the size selection "made to measure": If you order tailor-made shoes from us and wear orthopaedic insoles, it is necessary to send them to us. The shoe manufacturer infixes the shoe inserts exactly and you can then look forward to the shoes fitting perfectly.
