"German Rose” Square Shoes with Cutouts
Cow Mouth style women’s leather shoes
This collection is all about understated beauty. We wanted to take aspects of clothing that are often overlooked - such as perfect patterning and high quality, natural materials - and present them in a show-stopping way. When it comes to shoe design, we will often look to fantasy shapes or ornate embossing to create cool new items. With these shoes, though, we decided to take a look at German history to find a design that is already stunning, so that we could showcase it with our fine craftsmanship.
Our master shoemaker has been crafting fine footwear for many years and takes great pride in being able to make a shoe that looks medieval but does have some slight modern comforts. Traditionally, medieval shoes were always completely flat, without any heel at all. We consider this to be one of the main differences between modern shoes and their medieval counterparts.
“Cow Mouth” was a popular style in the 16th century for both men and women. The main characteristic of this style was the square toe, which was quite a departure from earlier style more pointed shoes. They were popular in all classes of society. A strap at the middle of the shoe keeps it attached to your foot, which we have finished with a brass buckle.
The main body for the shoe is made from leather. We have used suede to emphasize cutouts at the front of the shoe, which add a pop of contrasting color and really make these shoes amazing! The whole shoe is very well constructed, with neat (contrasting) stitching and fine curves to fit your foot. We hope that you appreciate them for their fine craftsmanship as much as you do for their comfort!
As with all of our shoes, these are well constructed and should serve you well. To increase their life, though, please make sure that you wipe off any excess dirt (especially in the seams) after each wear, and allow them to dry between each use. We also recommend the use of leather conditioner when they are dry (though we don’t recommend getting leather conditioner on the suede cutouts).
