Poulaines research


Poulaines, 15th century France (probably), MFA Boston
Now Boston surprises me with even older shoes that still have velvet on them!

We can’t remember if we’ve already reblogged these, but they’re worth a look. Thicker soles on the heels? That’s new.

I sort of like this found pair- it has a slight heel to it and velvet uppers. Poulaines would help walking in long skirts, they have been on my list of things to eventually get/make for a long time...

Just some links for making Poulaines, mostly how to articale and what others have done. - Making of turn shoe poulaines - Poor mans poulaines- great way to generate a custom pattern
