Economically priced historic footwear from Foxblade Trading
This quality range of boots and shoes are ideal for historic re-enactment, TV, film, theatre, LARP or just because you want some thing different.

Latest news 26.1.2014
I will be trading at the Cambridge Re-enactment Market 8/9 February 2014. Wood Green Animal Sanctuary. London Road, Godmanchester PE29 2NH This is a Saturday Sunday market.
I have restocked on most of my footwear following Christmas but some are still being manufactured, in addition I am adding new shoes to the range including a new early single toggle medieval boot based on the "York Boot". A new late 17th century/early 18th century shoe. Early 16th century Riever boots and new mid to late medieval cuff boot.
All being well I should be trading at both TORM in March and the ILHF in April, watch this space for more details.
I offer a try before you buy policy to ensure you get the right shoes/boots and the right fit. That means you tell me what you want and I'll post it out. If the footwear fits you pay the full invoiced amount, if not you only pay the outgoing postage and return the footwear. Although I will send footwear to almost any where in the world I can only offer this service to UK mainland addresses.
Many of many shoes and boots can be fitted with a rubber grip sole, it is best to ask your local cobbler to do this after you have tried on your footwear to ensure they fit. Alternatively you can buy stick on soles from many local hardwear shops or Supermarkets.
