Overview

June Swann, an English specialist on footwear and shoemaking, turns her attention to the shoes of Scandinavia from prehistory to 1950, drawing on evidence from recent excavations. Inevitably, most of the shoes date from the 17th century onwards and include remarkably well-preserved formal shoes, functional everyday shoes, clogs and boots and elaborate regional footwear that reflected the Scandinavian terrain and environment. The book is illustrated throughout with photographs, often in colour, of the footwear along with drawings that demonstrate changes in shoe technology over the centuries. Swann also discusses Migration and Viking footwear, the influence of Scandinavia's extensive trade connections on its fashion and includes comparisons with the footwear of the rest of Europe.
