This article is about Sabaton as a type of armour, for the band, see: Sabaton (band)

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.

According Funccens princes and dukes allowed to have toes of gothic sabatons 2.5 feet long, lords (barons and higher) 2 feet long, gentry 1 foot long.
