Pair of knee-high (approx. 65cm) Musketeer Boots, made from premium-quality cowhide. You will get a pair of top-quality hand-sewn Musketeer Boots with leather sole and a low heel. These boots are made in standard sizes and brown color.
Please note: The left Musketeer boot is cut the same as the left one. The boots are symmetrically (mutually substitutable), like the original boots in the 16th and 17th centuries. It happens sometimes that the butterfly (stirrup protection) is mounted in the opposite way over the ankle bend (talus) on one may think that two left (or right) boots were delivered in error. When this happens, please take off one butterfly and strap it in the right position on the boot again.

A musketeer was an early modern type of infantry soldier equipped with a musket. Musketeers were an important part of early modern armies, particularly in Europe.
The Musketeers of the Guard were a junior unit of roughly company strength of the military branch of the Royal Household or Maison du Roi. They were created in 1622 when Louis XIII furnished a company of light cavalry with muskets. Musketeers fought in battle both on foot (infantry) and on horseback (dragoons). Because of its junior status, the Musketeers were open to the lower classes of French nobility or younger sons from noble families whose oldest son served in the more prestigious units. The Musketeers soon gained a reputation for boisterousness and fighting spirit as the only way for social and career advancement was excelling at their task as mounted light dragoons.

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.
