Part of a knight's armour that covers the foot.
A sabaton or solleret is part of a knight's armour that covers the foot. Fifteenth century sabatons typically end in a tapered point well past the actual toes of the wearer's foot. Sabatons of the first half of sixteenth century end at the tip of the toe and may be wider than the actual foot. They were the first piece of armour to be put on, and were made of riveted iron plates. Princes and dukes were allowed to have toes of gothic sabatons 2.5 feet long, lords 2 feet long and gentry only 1-foot long.
