The Shoes Were Invented By Whom?

The primitive man discovered the need to cover feet and protect them, when required to make his way through forests and over rocks. The first hoes probably were sandals, were sandals, were mats of grass, strips of hide, or even flat pieces of wood.

These were fastened to the soles of the feet by thongs that were then bound around the ankles. In colder regions, these sandals did not protect the feet fully. In time more material was added and by and by the sandals developed into shoes.

The Egyptians were the first civilised people to make shoes. They used pads of papyrus or leather, further bound to the foot by two straps. With a view to afford protection to toe the front of sandal was turned up.

The further advancement was provided by Romans and they developed ‘calceus’ a kind of shoe. This had side slits and straps knotted in front. These were in different forms to be worn by different class of people in society.

In some cold regions, people developed a kind of shoe. They sometimes wore bags padded with grass and tied around the fact. With the passage of time, these foot coverings developed into the “moccasins” of the Eskimo and the Indian.

The beginning of our modern shoes can be traced to the crusades. They went on long pilgrimages and thus need to protect feet. It became necessary to create shoes that would last a long time. With further development leather shoes made their appearance in Italy, France and England.

The shoes have always been influenced by fashions and whims. During the time of King James, I of England, very soft leathers and high heels were fashionable in society. Although it made walking difficult, yet people insisted on them. Earlier to them, long toed shoes were the fashions. These shoes were very narrow and the toes were twelve to fifteen centimetres long and thus coming to a point. The shoe making was introduced in the United States in the year 1629, when Thomas Beard arrived under contract to make shoes for the pilgrim colony.
