The oldest pictures of boots were found in cave paintings in Altamira/Spain and date back to 13.000 to 15:000 B.C. Boots protect the wearers foot and calf from cold and injuries. They were, and still are, essential for outdoor activities or bad weather conditions. Prehistoric hunters, knights, adventurers and pirates - all of them wear boots for good reasons.
The shape of the jackboot, seen here in our "Barnabas" offer, developed late from the mounted soldiers boots. The long gaiters, used as a protection for the riders legs, were rolled down consequently and became a fashion thereafter. The "Barnabas" jackboot is made from synthetic leather. There is a strap with buckle just underneath the cuff to tighten the boot closer to the wearers calf. Another strap is fixed on the ankle to have the foot tightly fixed into the heel-cap. This maximizes the comfort additionally.
Another nice detail are the three brass buckles. The left side of the cuffs is made to be rolled upwards; this leads to an improved warmth and protection.
The "barnabas" jackboots are costume boots. They are not made for the intense use on battlefields.
