Shoe peg

Shoe peg

A small hardwood peg used to attach shoe soles to the rest of the shoe. Before attempting to drive the pegs into the leather, holes were made in the leather with a Peg awl. While metal shoe nails were sold by the ounce or pound, shoe pegs were usually sold by volume, e.g., by the quart.
