Early medieval toggle shoes, Jorvik style

These ankle-high shoes are based on archaeological finds made in the northern English city of York, the early Jorvik. They are dated to the 9th to 10th centuries - a time when England was divided into many smaller kingdoms. The Anglo-Saxon population had to fend off the constant Viking raids. Many Vikings settled in England. York was also conquered by the Danes and ruled by the Norsemen for around 100 years. More information...

Early medieval toggle shoes, Jorvik style

As these shoes date from exactly this period, they can definitely be described as Viking shoes. The two toggle buttons used to fasten the shoes are a special feature. These can also be replaced with horn or leg buttons. The sole of the shoe is made of smooth leather and has a small heel. 

  • Material: cowhide
  • Robust cover leather (approx. 2 mm thick)
  • Nailed leather sole: approx. 6 mm thick
  • Colour: dark brown
  • Available as standard in sizes: 40 to 47

Please note:

The robustness of shoes based on historical patterns may not meet modern requirements! They are quite sensitive on tarmac, concrete blocks and gravel. These floor coverings did not exist in the Middle Ages! We therefore recommend retrofitting them with rubber soles at the cobbler of your choice if you walk a lot on hard surfaces. We would also like to point out that leather is a natural product and that variations in colour and/or grain are quite common. Therefore, no two pairs of these leather shoes are the same and the images above are for illustrative purposes only.
