With this shoe model, we concentrated on historical correctness in detail.
The shoes are made as turn sewn shoes reversed sewn. This means the upper leather is stitched to the sole and afterwards turned outwards so the seam is within the shoes and not outside. Just like in medieval times. The seams on upper leather are done in shock-seam. You see no seam outside as well just as it was produced back then.
A small leather flap is stitched to the heel part between upper leather and sole. This flap is practical for adding a second heel sole or repairing the shoe. Also made after historical record of late medieval shoes.
The shoes are made of vegetal tanned leather
Upper leather thickness: approximately 2.5mm
outsole leather thickness: app. 3-4mm
Upper material: leather
This model fits well if you just pick your regular shoe size. If you tend to need a half size we recommend to pick the smaller size as the leather stretches with useage.
We color the shoes after incoming order individual which takes app. 5 working days. This is the reason for the stated delivery time. Despite that you have your fully withdrawal right of 1 month.
We color the shoes with oil dye on an alcohol base which is a very good solution for a medieval look. Most offered shoes in this price category are painted with colors on acryl base which is a covering color. But medieval coloring meant that the color soaks into the leather and you still see the natural surface texture afterwards. Even if our color has synthetic paint pigments, it exactly does that. It soaks into the leather and gives you this beautiful look as shown in the pictures. Every pair of shoes is unique due to the fact that the pores in the leather soak differently. Due to our manufacturing you get this antique look and a truly highlight for your medieval garb.
The name Korduan red comes from medieval times. Cordoba was the central for red leather in the middle ages for a long time and most of the red leathers came from there.
