Shoemakers were skilled craftsmen, and they were in the middle class. Shoemakers were of two types, cobblers, who repaired shoes and made inexpensive shoes, and cordwainers, who made fine shoes. Obviously, the cobblers were not as prosperous as the cordwainers, and there were doubtless a number of them who were itinerant workers, who went from village to village doing repairs for the folk. The cordwainers formed a guild in London, received the right to regulate the shoe trade in 1272, and were given a royal charger in 1439.
