Database of Roman shoe finds
I was looking for a collection of reference material regarding late roman shoes. 4th, 5th and 6th century thereabouts. In my online search I found this. While not neccesarily what I was looking for, It might be a nice little catalogue that can be of use to the Roman reenactment community on here. Basicly it's a list of archeological shoe finds ordered by date, location and corresponding culture. There is a good chunk of Roman stuff in there as well. The added value is that allot of them also have pictures for those of us who want to try at making them ourselves. And if there's no picture available, there is an literary footnote on it's source.

One Example: 

"The Mainz Boot - Mainz, Germany
Germany: Mainz
  • Roman Hobnail sole
Stepping Through Time By Olaf Goubitz – Page No: 51 – fig.21b
  • Roman Caligae
Margrethe Hald's Primitive Shoes -  pages: 58"

The link is:

I hope it can be of use for some of you all.

With kind regards,

Surely it is helpful. But don't expect any answers, this forum looks much dead, probably coronavirus has infected even this website.
