The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 19: The Sheriff’s Boots

The Sheriff is in desperate need of a new pair of shoes but the shoemaker just does not have shoes that will help the Sheriff be more comfortable. By chance, the Sheriff’s horse goes lame near a village, where he is offered a pair of shoes for his long journey by foot to Nottingham. The shoes are well made and are comfortable. Soon others from around go to the village to get a pair of shoes of their own. The town shoemaker is not happy at this loss of business and tries to forcibly stop the village from making their shoes but they are willing to fight back. The mystery of the uniquely soft leather used for the boots opens the eyes of the Sheriff to get involved in the fight against the village and the leather makers but to what end.

Personal Synopsis

A good episode of the politics in the town of Nottingham. The merchants are being out skilled by villagers but will not lose their profits without resorting to violence. The villagers are tough but they may need some help from Robin and the Outlaws. As the Sheriff enjoys his boots he is held to uphold the laws of the land even if that means towards the makers of his beloved shoes. This episode shows the ladies of the village kicking butt and the revenge against the shoemaker of Nottingham. All in all a fun watch.
