"York's Viking residents wore leather shoes and boots of turnshoe construction.  They were made by professional shoemakers.  Leather was cut to shape and then moulded and stitched together inside out on a wooden foot-shaped block called a last.  It was then turned the right way round so that the seams were on the inside.
