remember when I told you I was working on a special luxurious project? Well here it is – “The nobleman`s shoes” or “the christmas elf shoes” as we call them 🙂
These are exclusively nobleman`s shoes worn by both men and women from western and central Europe from the 12th to the 14th centuries. They`re custom made and one of a kind. The leather sole is 7mm thick, the upper is 1,1-1,2mm and the fabric is 100% pure silk. The edge of the upper is enforced with extra stitching and lining to avoid tearing in the fabric. The design and embroidery pattern are based on extant originals and studies on medieval footwear. For the binding stitch I used waxed linen thread, and for the embroidery and enforcing stitches I used cotton threads. The buttons are made of glass beads. The shoes` size is 40-41 by European size standards (6,5 t0 7,5 British sizes and 7-8 by american standards).
But the best part is they are FOR SALE
