(Along with Dress Accessories) these two volumes brook few rivals and represent the best scholarship focused on shoes and everyday dress accessories from the Middle Ages. Indispensable....Groundbreaking. --Speculum

Indispensable to shoe researches for the reliability of its dating evidence. --Finds Research Group

43 of 48 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 13, 2002
Format: Hardcover
Shoes And Patterns is an in-depth archaeological study of medieval footwear, made possible by preserved footwear of the 12th through 15th century discovered along the north bank of the river Thames and permanently housed in the collection of the Museum of London. The detailed and informative text is enhanced throughout this impressive work of archaeological and historical scholarship with numerous black-and-white photographs and drawings which make the shoes of centuries ago as real and practical as if they were worn today. An essential addition to academic Medieval History studies reference collections, Shoes And Patterns is particularly recommended reading for theatrical costumers, replica-makers, historical reenactors and anyone with a festive curiosity about this down-to-earth topic of medieval footwear.

Format: Hardcover
Shoes and Pattens is one of THE two great books using actual finds to show footwear in the English Middle Ages. A must have for anyone who is interesed in recreating period footwear or simply knowing about leather uses.
The second book is Stepping Through Time (David Brown Books) which follows footwear found in Holland dating from pre-history to 1800.
