Faire ses chaussures
I say medieval-type, because it's just supposed to invoke a sense of the medieval era. I didn't do extensive research on ancient garb for feet (though I did browse through hundreds of pictures on google) but I did want it to seem like it came from a time similar to the dark ages. One last thing. I know I mentioned it twice in the tutorial already, but I really would love to know what you guys think and how your own shoes turn out. I will favorite whatever you guys make with this and put links to it here in the description so everyone else can see what you've done, too. I also love comments, anything that will help me do better. Medieval-Type Shoe Tutorial by ~Autnott on deviantART

Celtic leather shoes (aided by a Lasercutter) Since I already had celtic shoes with I wanted to use as a pattern, I opened the laces and laid a shoe flat on the table. Then I took a picture. I imported the picture into a graphics tool (I used CorelDraw, but OpenSource Inkscape should also work). First I tried to vectorize it automatically, but the result didn't look good. Then I put the picture in the background and draw the outline with the mouse; I only placed a point at each corner, and then smoothed the lines (there is a option for line objects; sorry that I cannot give the correct technical terms, since I'm using the German version of the software). The second picture shows a screenshot of the pattern drawing with the line option symbols.

Make Your own Tire SandalsAdapted from Participating in Nature: Wilderness Survival and Primitive Living Skills I'm hard on shoes. It's not uncommon for me to go through half a dozen pairs of shoes, or more, each year. I maintain an active lifestyle, hiking, playing, camping, and working. Water wears out a shoe quicker than anything else. A few trips in and out of the creeks, puddles, and swamps, and they just come unglued. Tire Sandals: Innovative footwear recycled from old tires.
Edited to add: Due to alle the comments regarding the title of this instruction, I've changed the name to 'iron age shoes' which might be more historycally correct. I learned to make these by using my own foot as a template. Therefore, all the measures given here are highly approximate.
