Best Answer

There were two kinds of shoe makers in the Middle Ages. One was the cobbler, who made and repaired ordinary shoes for common people. The other was the cordwainer, who made luxury shoes. Cobblers were often itinerant workers who travelled through the country from one manor or village to another doing whatever work they could find. Cordwainers were likely to be established in cities and were likely to be members of trades guilds.
