Roman Sandals.... $200
Mike, Albion Armorers,
...The caligae arrived safe and sound! I got them thursday-evening
and needed them the friday thereafter, so I was a bit nervous about
the last bits of work (cutting the holes for the laces to size and
finding said laces), but both worked out.
The caligae are marvellous; I love the smell of the leather and
the hobnails under the soles. And they were surprisingly comfortably!
It was a rather chilly and rainy weekend, but one thing is for sure:
I never ever had cold or uncomfortable feet!
Even loose sand worked itself out of the sandals almost as quickly
as it got in. So they have had their baptism of fire and they came
out excellently! Thank you very much for all the wonderful work
-obviously for the people of the Cobbler Shop as well! It is much
appreciated and much enjoyed! On which note I am happy to add that
everyone I show either caligae or helmet to, are quite impressed
by both the beauty and the quality of your work!
