“Gudrun the Wolfdottir” Laced Viking Shoes
Leather embossed Viking shoes with wolves
When creating your Viking costume, don’t forget the addition of shoes! Can you imaging gear up for battle, lacing on your armor, preparing to fight… and then realizing that you’re not wearing shoes? They give us the ability to explore and walk on all sorts of terrain that our bare feet could not, and make a huge difference in everyday life… so why are they often overlooked when it comes to medieval costumes? We know why: they are often uncomfortable. With this in mind, we set out to create comfortable, awesome looking shoes.
These are made from a strong leather that is still soft and flexible and will mold to your foot to give you the perfect fit with time. It has a beautiful texture to it, and the surface will weather well with age if they are taken care of well and treated with respect. They are lined with contrasting leather and are well finished, and are a truly high-quality piece of footwear.
These shoes do up at the front with the help of leather lacing, giving them the slight appearance of awesome medieval sneakers. A knot work wolf design twists its way down the shoe, embossed deeply into the leather. This is an ArmStreet design, created by our in-house artists, especially for this collection.
We have used a combination of medieval and modern techniques in the creation of these shoes. The modern aspect is what adds to the comfort – modern shoe lasts. This means that they fit better around your foot than most medieval shoes. We have used a number of layers of material to make them less slippery and more supportive, just like modern shoes. These layers include a leather insole, leather fibreboard, a porous breathable orthopedic base, and a ribbed rubber outsole.
Important note about measurements:
Please be accurate taking measurements – that influences very much at our ability to make the item that will suit you perfectly. Also, you should remember that natural leather is soft material and it will stretch so when you are getting your shoes it is normal that it fits very slim. It will get your feet shape after one or two days of usage.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
Important note: Brown, Natural and Cream leather shades may vary, as unfortunately we can't control color of leather which comes from our suppliers. Sometimes it may be darker or lighter, so if tone of the leather is important factor for you, please contact us before purchase to ascertain which color exactly we have in stock at the moment. Thank you for understanding.

very well made, came faster than expected, and are beautiful on.
These boots are even more beautiful in person! They fit perfectly, are incredibly comfortable and the quality is well worth the price! You're the best, Armstreet!
I ordered these shoes and I am very pleased with them. They fit true to size for me (I wear 38 Euro/7 US) and are very comfortable, even right from the box. I was concerned they would be a bit small at first, but once fully unlaced, my foot slid right in and they fit as though made for me. They look great with Viking kit, are light but sturdy, and can be worn all day with or without socks in comfort. Recommended.
I have a question regarding size. My daughter has a wide foot and has always had issues finding boots that fit. Plus, she broke her foot 4 years ago, has metal plates, and now needs a slightly larger boot for that foot. It is also quite sensitive if seams press and rub. This could be a challenge I know, but let me know if you are up to it. Sharon
Hello, please send us her measurements and pictures of her foot with the measuring tape so we could confirm we can make custom size boots for her.
Love these boots, super comfy, i need to wear them a bit more so the leather can stretch out a little theyre a wee bit tight. Overall a great set of viking boots!
These boots are GORGEOUS!!!! the fit is absolutely perfect and the craftsmanship is beyond belief. Have no doubts, if you need custom boots or shoes for your Ren faire garb, this is the place to purchase them!!
These are the most beautiful boots I have ever seen and worn, crafted with utmost care form the best quality leather, even the laces. I plan to wear them everywhere. Thanks for your exquisite work!
Just got my pair of boots in today and I am in Love with them. 10 out of 10 did not expect the sheer amount of quality put into them, and even the packaging was perfect. I will definitely be purchasing more items from Armstreet in the future.
These shoes are amazingly beautiful :) The craftsmanship is exquisite-Well worth the wait. The fit is wonderful- I have very wide feet and short toes (Flintstone Feet! Hehe) Armstreet made them perfect! Am already starting a wish list for the next footwear I order from them. Thank you Alionya for your patience with me and my 1st time order-you are wonderful and were quick to reply to my concerns. Happy Customer! Thank you again Armstreet :)
I love my boots. I wear them everywhere, except work! :D Beautiful.
I absolutely love these boots. I got them a couple days before my event and was able to wear them 12+ hours at the event and they were so comfortable!
This is the first time I've ever ordered custom-sized shoes, and I'm glad I did! I wasn't sure if they were sized as boots or shoes, and my measurements fell in between the two, so I thought it would be easier to just have them made to fit me. They are so beautiful and of such high quality that they will be my everyday shoes just as soon as it's cool enough to ditch sandals for the year. And I LOVE that the design is the same as on the Shieldmaiden tunic trim. Gives new meaning to having an outfit with "matching shoes"! They are also a bargain, considering the quality and design.
I love these boots. They are very comfortable and look great with all of my medieval costumes. My feet are a bit on the wide side and I was still able to buy a fixed size. I am very happy with my purchase. Thank you, Armstreet, for your wonderful products.
I just got my custom shoes in and I love them! Make sure to check how to measure and watch their video, it helped me out so much! When I first received it I was sent the ones with the buckle but it was a godsend as they didn't fit quite right. Armstreet customer service was extremely helpful with getting me the right shoes and making sure I measured correctly. I adore Armstreet and as always be buying all of their lovely products!
I'm looking to buy these in a fixed size but need to know if they're sized according to the men's size chart or the women's.
Hi Randi, they are sized according to the women's size chart.
Are these meant to be women’s shoes or no gender? Can these be made in extra extra wide? Thanks
Dear Ken, these boots can be made for a man and for a woman. Please contact our support team with your foot measurements so we could confirm we can make a pair for you. Kindly check how to take the measurements here.
