Tehse laced medieval boots are top quality and hand-made from genuine leather by an experienced Czech shoe-maker. They have a folded over cuff, they are almost knee high. They will definitely be a great addition to your medieval ensemble.
The boots are approx. 35cm high. The pair of boots in our photos were made of genuine brown leather. We photographed it on a sunny Indian-summer-day whereby the brown color was got reddish tone. The boots are provided with a rubber sole. We can also supply them with leather sole (as a custom-order), which we do not recommend, because the leather sole as opposed to the rubber sole is quite skiddy. Walking on wet grass is in them really dangerous! But if you insist the leather sole, please write your wish into your order.
With “natural leather color” is meant a color of crude leather without any further staining. The color varies from piece to piece and is often beige or light brown.

Our footwear is produced from leather of three basic colours: black, dark brown and light brown (also described as tan color). Any other color has to be applied in form of special covering varnish that has one important drawback. Cracks of the varnished leather may appear after some time of use. The varnish on mechanically strained parts may even crumble away. Please consider this fact before placing your order, as we cannot provide guarantee for the varnish for two years as usually. If you intend to use such shoes or boots just only once (e.g. for a wedding) or only several times a year, we assure you the shoes will serve you well and give you joy.
Care of the Medieval top boots with decorated cuffs
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.
