Welzheim No. 82

A pair of Welzheim no. 82 shoes with integral laces. This find is also known as the Geltsdale style and is dated to around the year 200 AD and as such can be seen as a sort of forerunner to the integral lace Ramshaw shoe style that is typical for the 3rd century AD. The nailing pattern I chose comes from Vindolanda.
