Record Type: concept
caligae (boots) (<boots by form>, boots (footwear), ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Low boots of a type first designed for Roman military use and later adapted for other uses. They are first known by the time of Augustus. The soles comprise several layers of leather, which may be nailed all around with hobnails for traction; the uppers may be cut in open latice work for ventilation, giving the boots a sandal-like appearance. For Christian liturgical footwear known by a homograph, use "liturgical stockings."
