Dipped Side Boot (c1000-1200)

A Boot with cut or dipped sides, found in Norris (Pg. 58). It is side seamed low boot, and an outgrowth of the plain shoe, with the sides cut away to make them easier to put on. This can be further modified into a boot with "fore and aft" points. The basic design is MY estimate of the pattern, and may not be absolutely accurate.
