Waarom vroue van skoene hou
During the Middle Ages a popular type of shoe was the ‘poulaine’. These had enormously long pointed toes that were often stuffed with moss to stiffen them. Apparently one of the attractions of wearing poulaines was the variation on ‘footsie’ you could play under the table. It’s said that men often wore them to banquets so they could stick them under the dress of a woman sitting opposite and tickle her between the legs.
