Get dressed for battle are doing reasable looking shoes (not tried them but their Mongolian cavalry boots are good) at a rewasonable price. You can find them at getdressedforbattle.co.uk

would suggest anna for her off the peg ones cheap as chips in standard sizes

google for anna period shoes


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

I'm sorry, do I know you? I've never seen this man before in my life, perhaps I have an interweb stalker or something. I am a serious, responsible grown up who wouldn't have anything to do with any sort of primate based forumite.

We started off doing Viking, and made our first turnshoes ourselves. Not terribly difficult in the midweight leathers, and it meant they were cheap (plus buying off the peg size 14s for Gareth proved impossible way back then!)
