Medieval Men's Shoes for Teens, Adults, and Elders CAS - Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding
Made by Kiara24 for The Merrye Makers
Revised by Monca533 for The Merrye Makers

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of twelve creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding".


Shoes and Shoemaking
There were two kinds of shoe makers in Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding. One was the cobbler, who made and repaired ordinary round toed shoes for frugal common people. The other was the cordwainer, who made luxury pointed styles, called "pigases", for the aristocracy of Simdom Pudding. Pointed toes were stuffed with moss, hair or wool. Adventurous noblemen wore bizarre variations of the stuffed pigache toe, such as the "fishtail", "serpent" and "scorpion". Carefully crafted from leathers soles and uppers, Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding dwellers waterproofed their shoes by oiling them or rubbing them with tallow or lard.
