You could look into the finds from Vindolanda (UK).

Which period? Military or civilian? The finds from Deurne/The Netherlands (early 4th c.) show types also worn in the Mediterranean, meaning types are not restricted to colder/hotter climate zones.

To be honest im not sure, i did look in to the uk excavations and they do have a feww examples, no i dont believe climate need be a factor. the importance i feel need be in how closed the boot is, as these will be made for an SCA heavy fighter and caligae simply arent adequate.

Well I have pinched this picture from the Archaic Sandals thread as I am fascinated by the boot (label says 1st - 2nd C ) but so far I cannot find where the artefacts are displayed (and Giannis doesn't know either!)

Anyone else know where this is?
