Greek footwear

Am I the only one who looks at this picture(Oedipus)and sees
sandals? The strap around the heel and lacing around the calves looks like sandals to me.
I guess they could be boots but I don't see it. :? sorry.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to go with Andy and they look like sandals to me also. Admittedly they look sturdier and more fit for traveling, running, etc. than simple thong sandals, but they still look like sandals to me.

What about colored thracian boots? I would like to have myne black or white & not lacing as this pic & osprey shows them, but you tie it them at the top of the flaps, as can be seen at right fromthe god....

I may fall if I run through the grass, because I wouldn't put heels on my boots...

Try fixing additional bands of leather on the soles, not as thick as heeling leather, it gives a bit more grip. But I think there's evidence for hobnails on military boots, isn't there?

Homer and Pindaros talk about the "red-shoed Orchomenians".
Leather colouring was known from the Bronze age!
I will try to find more imges of Beotian boots.

I would call some high boots just as Kothornus, I suspect that not always the high boots are Thraceans.

From the Giant group at Pergamos...
I feel that there is not limited style time period for high boots, what do you think?

The satyr acually wears the "attik" style boots.
The fancy flaps on the "thracic" more likely lynx (wilde cat). These anilmal was associated with the Lyngistes.
Kind regards

Hmm! attik & lynx flaps!... we have lynx here.

I did try to make this decorated boots from two diferent color pieces of leather, but the barge cement glue didnt catch it up, so I dont want to use the proccess of stiching it, may try other style. Smile

Those look like the Arthurian 'cavalry boots' I used to wear....
based on these...scroll down to second Osprey picture....

Some of these boots, look as though they are made of soft leather oor even embroidered fabric ...rather like high leg ballet type shoes...

It does look like the Arthurans!!!, can you wear it at watford?

Yes the leather for my boots was a process of thick cow, like for hard materiars, but when you sand both sides it become soft & flexible, but still strong.

Here you got one young Phrygian with his boots...I know you like it! Big Grin
