Medieval Moccasins are like no other shoes. Here you will find answers to some of our most often asked questions. If your question is not answered here, please feel free to contact us.

Medieval Moccasins are handcrafted leather shoes in a unisex design of ancient European origin and are equally appropriate for period or modern attire. Variations of this shoe can be traced back to Celtic times and have been found in archeological sites all over Southern Europe. This style was commonly known as a “bog shoe” or “ghillie”, a traditional Scottish folk dancing shoe.

Each shoe is made by hand with great care and attention to detail. This attractive alternative to more restrictive styles of footwear is seamless and washable by hand or in your machine. Each shoe is made from a single piece of leather, which is then laced in back and front. Our shoes are designed to hug the foot in comfort and support. By loosening and tightening the laces through the gathered rosette at the toe, the shoes will adjust to each individual foot.
