Does anyone have a pattern for Kuhmund boots?  I am trying to make some.

 

Thanks

I do not have a pattern, but I am actually curious if anyone has found a record of this style of toe being used in boots or Buskins. I can't recall ever having seen them in the art of the period.

I understand that some folks wear them - I just don't know if they are historically accurate or not.
I just need some boots, and I had assumed that they where period correct. I have seen wood cuts of men in armour with kumund sticking out of the bottoms and had assumed that they where boots. Because I know from experience that you cannot where grieves on a hoarse with plain shoes.
Are you sure that the 'shoes' are not a part of the armor themselves? I believe there are extant versions of armor from the period where the pieces over the feet were styled to look like shoes (in fact, the entire set of armor was styled as a set of puff-and-slash clothing).
Pictorial evidence would suggest that they did exist. I'm sorry I don't have the time to dig up many images right now.

Nice Georg cut! I've not seen that Doring print, esp. in color.
Excellent! I will have to file these away for future reference. Thank you!
I LOVE that particular suit you're talking about. Guess I'll have to wait until after I win the lottery so I can have one made though. Curses!
You and my husband both!
Tell him that if I win the lottery I'll cover half the cost of one made for him if he does likewise.
There are also images from Durer and from Holbien showing this style.
There are boots from the Mary Rose (eg. Before the Mast) made in this style. The book has very detailed drawings. Some are more round toed as it is 1540s and the extreme blunt toes are becoming less commonn but you can see the construction is very much the same as on earlier depictions.

I really *must* get my hands on a copy of this for my own - the interlibrary loan always snatches it back from me before I get a chance to really digest much of it!
