Catalog > § Footwear - xqa Mary Rose Shoes - Leather - WSC175
This shoe was worn by a typical sailor and is one of the few examples of preserved shoes that is not of an elite class. The slits were to let the water out, and they are made of a sturdy construction with a thick sole cobbled with nails to ensure long lasting quality.
This style of shoe can actually still be found in fashion today.
