Medieval Fashion, Footwear

Merovingian bootsHere is a pair of boots from the Merovingian period.

The women wore short, soft shoes or booties made of a leather material. They almost looked like socks.

Women's shoes were similar to those of the men, but without the exaggerated toes, and as well the men often had the sole of their shoe attached to their leather leggings.

Shoes were not only a luxury, but they were not really comfortable for walking in with their very thin soles.
