Origins of footwear

Prehistoric man devised a method to preserve his feet from cold, heat, stones, thorns, animal bites, etc.

This is how the first version of the braided straw sandal was born in civilizations with warm climates and warm animal skin boots were created on continents with low temperatures.

In historical times, footwear quickly became a luxury item for the ruling social class, while the common people walked around naked or poorly shod.

In Mesopotamia, rawhide shoes were common, held by strips of the same material and characterized by a thicker sole that gave them height; they were symbols of high social position.
