Ancient Greeks and Romans wore a wide variety of practical and decorative footwear, all of it flat soled (without heels). The military wore a heavy-duty, hobnailed standard-issue military marching boot. Shoemakers employed sophisticated strapwork and delicate cutting to create an intricate and decorative designs. Some soldiers would ornament their boots with a small animal’s muzzle or a pair of paws. Later the fashion became vogue to decorate buskins with lappets of leather or fur hanging from the tops.
This pair of military leg (shin) straps are the perfect addition to many of our Ancient Roman or Grecian warrior uniforms and can be used for historical events, a school play, or simply a fun day as you march through Ancient Sparta or Rome.
The term classical antiquity is often used to refer to history in the Old World from the beginning of recorded Greek history in 776 BC (First Olympiad). This roughly coincides with the traditional date of the founding of Rome in 753 BC, the beginning of the history of ancient Rome, and the beginning of the Archaic period in Ancient Greece.
