The shoe is made from a single flat piece of leather with a complicated outline which is drawn about the foot with a thong. A short seam behind the heel improves fit.

Fashions changed across the centuries. The general rule was that the poorer someone was, the simpler their clothes were: a simple belted tunic for peasants, shorter for men and longer for women, generally made of wool or linen. Men wore ‘braies’ - large baggy underwear - beneath their tunics. Women wore long slips known as ‘kirtles’. Both men and women wore ‘hose’ - leggings like long stockings without feet. Nobles had access to any fabric they liked, including the exotic silks and velvets brought back by crusaders and merchants, but only royalty were permitted an ermine trim. Most people wore woolen clothing, with undergarments made of linen, and bright colors meant you were rich. Find out what was it really like to live and dress in the Middle Ages, with easy reading articles and interactive games. - small paintings on the edges of pages in medieval books. What you wore depended on who you were in the Medieval period. If you were rich you would probably own a variety of clothes, in the latest styles and colours. If you were a poor peasant, you may only own one tunic. Although it was possible to obtain silks and other luxurious materials from abroad, they were very expensive. Most clothing therefore was made out of wool. This meant that clothing in the Medieval period was itchy, difficult to wash and dry and very hot in the summer. The Women's Fashion of the early Middle Ages was still influenced by the classical styles of the Greek and Roman women and their clothing was at times so tight as to display all the elegance of their form. The female clothing of the time consisted of two tunics, the under one being longer but less capacious than the other. Women also wore a long cloak over their clothing and closed shoes, which had then begun to be made pointed. During the period of 1200 - 1300 luxury was at its height when gold and silver, pearls and precious stones were lavished on clothing. During the period of 1300 - 1400 Women's coats and surcoats often trailed on the ground. Hats consisted of a frame of wirework covered over with stuff which was embroidered or trimmed with lace. During the period of 1400 - 1500 the women wore long trains to their dresses which were eventually shortened. Sleeves became long, hanging and embroidered or fringed. Fashion dictated that women's dresses and clothing became shorter and were trimmed in the most costly manner.
