Based on the 9th-10th century model found in the archeological site at Vlaardingen, Holland. There are findings of this kind of shoe up to the 11th century (as can be seen in the York and Picadilly sites). Our version differs from the original with the adjustable cords that make the shoes more comfortable to wear.
