An Innovative Method for Mounting the Sixteenth-Century Doublet and Trunk-Hose Worn by Don Garzia de'Medici
Arnold, Janet; Bulgarella, Mary Westerman
First I shall give the facts about this practice, such as they are: its distribution, the types of buildings involved, dates of the shoes, location within the building, a little about the shoes, and associated finds.

Please note that ‘shoes’ is used as a general term for footwear of all sorts.
