Cow-mouth shoe with strap, Goor, approx. 1510
The cow-mouth shoes have a characteristic wide toe cap. They were created as a counter-movement to the beak shoe with its extra-long tip, typical of the late Middle Ages. The deep neckline on the upper side, which almost showed the toes, is striking.
This shoe is manufactured with a frame seam, i.e. the upper leather is sewn to the insole and an additional outsole is doubled.
Our prices already include the doubled outsole (see photo).
Historical: depending on the era, reversible or welted; as close to the originals as possible
Modern: Inexpensive variant with historical cut but modern production (glued, machine sewn)
LARP: Modern version with extra rubber sole
