Middle Ages Footwear.

The Middle Ages were a bit strange when it came to footwear...

The fashion that came in, was an incredibly long toe.

"Pointed toes are hardly odd, but the fact that they became hugely exaggerated is. The toe gradually became longer and longer to the point of absurdity for some were so long it was difficult to walk.  Some even attached small bells to the end to indicate they were interested in a little flirtation.  Bells.  Flirtation. Surely you saw the connection? Maybe that’s where the whole “footsie” thing started?"   www.headoverheelshistory.com
