Original name



Metal shoes or guards




Claymore warriors

First appearance

Scene 1, Anime Scene 1


Unnamed by characters in manga and anime. From the Old French, "sabaton" is a diminutive of "soller," or shoe, from the Late Latin subtēlāris.


Claymore warriors wear metal shoes or shoe guards called sabatons Speaker.

Sabatons vary in construction among warriors. Clare's consists of two separate pieces—a solid toe and heel guard worn over her boots.[1]

Other warriors wear sabatons with a more shoe-like construction. Elena wears armor over the instep, which connect the toe and heel pieces.[2] Ophelia's has a boat-like construction.[3]

Heel heights range from flat to raised.
