You could look into the finds from Vindolanda (UK).

Which period? Military or civilian? The finds from Deurne/The Netherlands (early 4th c.) show types also worn in the Mediterranean, meaning types are not restricted to colder/hotter climate zones.

To be honest im not sure, i did look in to the uk excavations and they do have a feww examples, no i dont believe climate need be a factor. the importance i feel need be in how closed the boot is, as these will be made for an SCA heavy fighter and caligae simply arent adequate.

Well I have pinched this picture from the Archaic Sandals thread as I am fascinated by the boot (label says 1st - 2nd C ) but so far I cannot find where the artefacts are displayed (and Giannis doesn't know either!)

Anyone else know where this is?

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!
