The wraps consistent of two long, narrow strips of cloth, typically wool, which were wound around the leg and foot. By starting at the knee and wrapping downwards and ending at the toes, no clips or fasteners are needed. The wraps stay firmly in place, even during vigorous activity.
The best part is this comment: They ended up surprisingly comfortable for floormat shoes (where any comfort probably rates as surprising). with sock, the nerd factor skyrockets, but so does the genuine comfort.
