Layer 4 – Accessory Layer – Boots
These are turnshoes based on the Haithabu (Hedeby) grave site number nine. I drafted the pattern based on this picture
I decided to use a nice black cow leather (3-4 oz) I had and natural cow leather (8-12oz) for the sole. I used real sinew (a gift from the past) to sew the front seam and I used artificial sinew for the seams attaching the upper to the sole as I have a ton of it and it will last longer than the leather.
It is held closed with a leather strip
