The Hornfoots are a clan of free folk who live beyond the Wall near the Frostfangs.
Hornfoots wear nothing on their feet, which turns the soles of their feet hard and black. Hornfoot men wear fur and wield long spears.
The Hornfoot folk warred with the Nightrunners before Mance Rayder, King-Beyond-the-Wall, negotiated a peace between them.
The Hornfoot men join with Mance Rayder for his attack on the Wall.
Two clan chiefs of the Hornfoots kneel to Stannis Baratheon at Castle Black. Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, meets a Hornfoot with maimed feet.
