We had an unusual request  – a pair of Medieval styled yeoman boots that would be used to hike the mountains in Spain during a vacation. That means heavy soles and serious comfort. To make it possible to adjust the ankle if necessary we added a panel with a buckle and strap inspired by an illustration from a museum collection of actual footwear from the period. The leather is nubuck, so, very soft, a matte finish, and great wear ability. I think we scored on all points. The proof will be in a month or so after our customer gets back from his trip.
