Shoes of lower classes, late 16th to an early 17th century

  • The shoes of lower classes are available in light brown colour, as shown in our photos.

These shoes are available in standard EUR sizes. If you select the size "made-to-measure", they will be manufactured according to this measurement chart. Please fill it in after you finish your order.

Care of the Shoes of lower classes

The shoes are treated with a 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 shoe polish can easily tone the leather colour 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.
