Finished Caligae using the new hobnails
#1
That I received from Matt Lukes. The pattern is a composite of the pattern shown in Bishop and Coulston, page 112, and the Ledermuseum caliga:

My feet are securely held in place at three points, about the ankle, the heel, and the top of the foot, not just at two points as some have reported.

The socks are a pair of old wool socks that I modified by cutting out the heels and toes to match the Cancelleria Relief.

The conical nails were a bit more difficult to hammer in straight than were the Le Prevo nails. More details of the construction may be found at:
