Turnshoes and rain

Decorated Anglo-Saxon/Viking turn shoes. The vamp area across the top of the foot has parallel lines of dark linen thread sewn into the leather. Not only does it make the foot look longer, but the stitching stiffens the leather at that point preserving the shape. Rather than anchors made with leather toggles, these have just twined thongs to close the shoe.
