Spartan Shoes
Thanks for posting the pictures.
And there is a toe-strap :oops:

Nice shoes, though from the statue there should also be a connection at the heels.

And weren't Spartans shoes known to be crimson red? Or was only the strap crimson coloured?
"Go and tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, that here obedient to their laws we lie." -Thermopylae

Nick Sekunda definitely thinks the whole shoe was crimson red, as stated and portrayed as such in an Osprey publication Spartan Army. I know that Osprey information cant be considered as a scientific publication, but I remember there was a paragraph in there where these shoes were discussed in detail.

In the old times, people were much closer to each other. The firing range of their weapons simply wasnt long enough Smile
There''s a seam up the heel, right?

As I'm not rep[resenting a Spartan, and as Spartan shoes in red would be a political hot-button in early 5th C. Plataea, I chose NOT to dye mine red. Smile
