Medieval pointed metal sabatons, S. XIV
Pointed medieval metal sabatons with a thickness of 1.5 mm, and with a design inspired by the models used during the 14th century. In the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, sabatons (also known as sollerets or solerets) were pieces of plate armor that covered the top and sides of the foot. Mounted knights commonly used them to protect their feet against blows from enemy infantrymen.
They are hand-forged from 1.5mm thick steel, blackened on the inside for better corrosion resistance, and fitted with leather straps riveted on the bottom. They have no sole and consist of a conical, albeit slightly rounded toe, several hinged or slatted bands, an ankle plate, a 'tongue' plate and a heel cap, all connected to each other by sturdy rivets.
