$4.00

Hobnails date as early as Roman times and were commonly used on boots into the 20th century.  Using a short nail with a rounded head pounded into the sole and/or heel of a shoe allowed the wearer to have more traction in muddy or rocky terrain.  They also extended the life of the leather sole.
