Selection of medieval shoes. The shoe on the left is a woman's welt construction shoe for the left foot with a narrow oval toe, and narrow waisted sole which shows signs of outdoor wear. The high cut vamp has a straight edge, and the decoration consists of three longtitudinal cuts from the toe with two rows oblique slashes along the edge of the throat. The other two shoes are of leather and plain in design.
