They are very useful - my only comment would be that if you are considering them for use after about 1500 then the ones in the picture you have posted are wrong as the shoe shape has changed.

You would need to find someone to make a pair to match a round toed Tudor shoe.

Very useful.

Again, remember that post 1600 (possibly earlier) they have iron rings on the bottom, not just wooden soles.
