Chaussure avec patin du Roi Jean (1440). From Histoire des cordonniers : précédée de l’histoire de la chaussure depuis les temps les plus recules jusq’a nos jours. Paris : Sere, 1852. Author: P. L.  Jacob, (1806-1884).

(In the original source the year is 1440. We suspect a problem because at this time the shoe fashion was much shorter. In addition, there was no king in 1440 with the name Jean in France.)
