Most shoes were ankle height, although there are a few examples of higher boots. A pair of calf-high reproduction boots are shown to the right, which use the same kind of toggle closure as the shoe shown above. In addition, the saga literature mentions high shoes. In chapter 9 of Hávarðar saga Ísfirðing, Valbrand's sons took off their high shoes while they raked hay.
