As one of the warriors of your Viking tribe, you travel frequently. It’s a hard life and one that is not kind to the weak. If you cannot keep up you will be left behind.
Your many travels require a pair of Thor Shoes designed to last. You rely on these leather shoes to keep you on your feet! Along with your sword, armour and your skill, you expect that you may please the gods in many battles. You certainly have the warrior’s instinct.
Epic Armoury’s Thor Shoes are leather boots with soft, split-leather on the inside. These ankle-high boots are entirely made of natural materials, making them a perfect addition to a historically inspired costume. The thick leather soles are classically sewn to the upper, which protects and forms to your feet over time. Secure these boots using the adjustable lacing and toggles around the ankle.
Made from top-grain leather, these Thor Shoes are designed to complete your fantasy or historic costume. With reinforced stitching around the edges and reinforced leather at the heels, these shoes are built to withstand extensive abuse with regular leather care.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
