Leather shoe of the late 14th century excavated from the riverside at St. Paul's. The large hole on the front of the shoe, was caused by wear from a bunion which is a swelling of the joint associated with displacemnet of the big toe. This condition was worsened by narrow, pointed or badly fitting footwear, which were very fashionable at this time.
