Hello there,
after waiting for a short while ( only 16 months :roll: , Bodo, the shoe maker isn´t the fastest lad in town!) we got our Lucas-type shoes :D
The price was 150 EUR each pair. The shoes are very comfortable. If someone is interested try to contact Bodo via his homepage: http://www.bododanneck.de/
Maybe he, or better his wife Hexe, wants to make another pair.
More pics are in my gallery.

I love the chord that paasses through the center of the upper of the shoe looks great!!!

Kerstin and me met Bodo, the shoemaker, yesterday and ordered two pairs of shoes for ourselves. The shoes are of the style like the one from the picture below.
The price isn't fixed yet, because Bodo has little experience with that type (estimated price is 150€ for one pair).
We also asked him about his schedules for this year somewhere near you. He said he's doing a market somewhere near Munic this summer, but he couldn't remember the exact date. If you want to contact him, you can visit his hp at http://bododanneck.de .


What museum has the she shoe in the Photo?
Thanks

Hi Seth,
without checking my notices I´m not sure, but I think the NMI in Dublin has a Lukas-type Shoe.
Our shoes are "a little bit adapted" to modern streetsurface. They are not made from one piece, but have a modernized base with an extra thick leather layer. The different types of the tongues are mentioned in a book about historical shoetypes, which Bodo the shoemaker possesses. Unfortunately I don´t remember the title anymore.

I have been reading Barber, John W. Excavations on Iona, 1979 Proc. Soc Antiq Scot, 111,1981, 282-380 He mentions a turn shoe version with a separate sole on page 320. Great illustrations of the leather finds too.

Brendan,
if you clarify dating information - that would be great. Because for now Iona and DPF look like 7th century, other papers on multi-piece shoes give "early christian" as dating speculation. If this one is 11th-12th - provides idea of continuous tradition.

Here is my turn on Annaholty Bog find.
As for me, the shoe could be from the 12th C because of the thin thread used in decorative stitches. I did not finish the decoration yet, however I understand that stitches to the toe are "must be" to follow the tradition in fashion. Will add later.
