Show here your Greek warrior impression
Quote:I didn't have any. At first i couldn't doa step. Christian you can imagine how it was...an uncultivated farm like those in Plataia,only to these you should add the dry fallen olive leaves. The become very hard,they turn and become pointy and sharp. I was rulling out the possibility of them fighting barefoot. But this was initially. After the first tries of shots with me having to walk fast back and forth i got used quickly. Perhaps i got used to hurt! Anyway,after half an hour or so i was looking dow and was realizing "ah,i'm sitting on a spiky little bush!" I believe someone who has spent his life walking barefoot wouldn't have any issue to fight in there. And remember,it was an uncultivated place. farms are usually much smoother,as i was actually working barefoot on my farm as a test last year. Again,my biggest issue then was the heat of the ground and not the surface. And i repeat,my feet are nothing like hardenned.
I believe shoes and sandals were for few and again only used in long travels(travellers are always shown with high sandals and socks) and in the town,where someone would have to avoid the dirty streets.

I do believe it. When we were fighting in June, we all ended up barefoot, despite some serious wheat stubble in the fields--I had the same experience, with initial pains and then forgetting. The Spartan shoes will help, but I made thme mostly because our current Roman adversaries have hobnails and I got my worst injury form hobnails to the top of the foot--not a period problem, I suspect!

Anyway, great look, Giannis, and very dramatic.
Qui plus fait, miex vault.
