A Pair of Beautifully Carved Medieval Shoes

Welcome back!
Today I will present to you a pair of very beautiful 14th century carved shoes. The shoe model is based on extant originals and the decorations are based on depictions and originals. They are carved in a grid of squares of about 1 cm, with several wider lines carved across the front of the shoe. As you can see from the pictures, they turned out great, and I’m happy with my work. This type of leather is excellent for carving. Also, it’s very flexible and thick, so the shoe’s integrity is not compromised in any way. The carving is pretty simple, all you need is the right tools and the time to prepare the leather. I did half the work on this pair in Grunwald, Poland, that’s why the pictures took so long to share. Anyway, enjoy! ^_^

Best regards
