Pattens (Wooden Overshoe)
Throughout history people have worn wooden shoes as overshoes to protect their valuable leather or fabric shoes and boots from abrasion and mud. Our pattens have adjustable leather straps made from soft supple quality veg tanned leather and are fastened with leather thongs.
The soles have been hand cut from pine so that they are not too heavy for the wearer. These shoes are based on historical examples and this style with a long pointed toe were most popular in the 14th and 15th centuries. These are the high heeled shoes of the middle ages and great for keeping long dresses out of the mud and for prolonging the life of your shoes. Worn by both Men and Women of various social classes.
