Turn shoes are called like that because they were turned inside out while they were being made. Turn shoes were mainly worn during the High and Late Middle Ages, from the 11th to the 15th centuries. Compared to boots, for example, people used less leather for making these shoes, so they were a bit cheaper (even though such shoes were still very expensive). People wore wooden trippen over the shoes to protect them from wear and tear so that this expensive medieval purchase could last as long as possible. These shoes are made of brown leather and have a leather sole with nails. You can fasten the shoes using the strap with historical brass buckle.

Maintenance & care
