Caliga (plural: Caligae)
Time Period: 3rd century BCE to 4th century CE
Location: Rome
Common Construction: Leather with iron spikes nailed into the soles

Caliga are leather sandals worn by the Roman military. They could be considered the first cleats because they had iron spikes nailed into the soles to provide traction and possibly allow the soldier to kick or stomp his opponent.

They are made from a single piece of leather that is folded over the foot and tied together at the top. Laces extend past the ankle and up the leg.

Nice that you're going to turn Mersina in a bilingual!As you parbobly know, my sons are bilingual.In England, they didn't actually speak Dutch back to me, but I spoke Dutch to them most of the time, that way, they at least knew the language passively. And so they picked it up really fast when we moved to the Netherlands.
