Description

Contrary to popular belief, Roman soldiers did not wear sandals as a part of their uniform. Their footwear, the Roman Caligae, were more like thick-soled shoes that featured an open shoe shape, which was designed to be comfortable and functional. In Roman society, sandals were actually reserved only for indoor wear. The caligae were thick-soled and had an open look quite similar to that of a sandal, which served the purpose of ventilating a Roman soldiers foot, to allow for comfort, even when under harsh conditions, like forced marches. These caligae feature the same open construction and are made from brown colored leather materials. For pure authenticity when it comes to your own Roman military look, nothing beats having a quality pair of Roman Caligae to wear. Not only do they add authenticity to the look, but they are also fairly comfortable, when you consider that the shoes design is actually quite old.

Key Features:

  • Modeled after Standard Roman Army Footwear
  • Features a Simple Brown Leather Appearance
  • Made from Quality Materials
  • Adds a Great Look of Authenticity to Roman Looks
  • Makes for a Great Medieval Gift Idea

    I was very satisfied with these Roman caligae. They are a fabulous replica.

    The quality is very good. I bought a pair from another place for a lower price and was not satisfied with the quality, so I returned those and bought these. Although they are more expensive, the quality os better and it was worth the additional cost.

    The product was as described on the website. I was satisfied.
    I would indeed recommend the product. I bought these to portray a Roman Centurion for our Church’s Easter presentation and it was well wort the purchase.

    My ordering and purchasing experience was simple and easy.
