Shoes and Pattens
The standard English-language reference work on medieval footwear from the Museum of London
Stepping Through Time
Stepping Through Time by Olaf Goubitz, one of the standard references for medieval shoemakers
The Art of The Cordwainer
Al Saguto’s translation of M.De Garsault’s 1767 Art du cordonnier. A must-have book for anyone interested in late-period shoes. Much of the content in applicable to late 1500s shoemaking.
ANA Period Shoes
Very nicely made, highly accurate high medieval shoes. She also does nice pattens.
German maker of period shoes. Some of their work is good, some is completely ahistorical, but their “Almost right” shoes are well priced, and look far far more accurate than the junk coming out of India and Pakistan.
Historical Italian Shoes
I don’t know who this guy is but he appears to be a reenactor working with period tools and equipment and he captures the form of the historic shoes he’s making as well as anyone I’ve ever seen.
Sarah Juniper Shoes
A properly trained cordwainer, Sarah Juniper’s work is exceptional. I have minor issues with some of her medieval shoes but her Tudor shoes in particular are basically perfect.
