0 History of shoes

The shoes are an item of clothing whose role is to protect the feet. The term shoe derives from the verb put, taken from the latin calceare 'put shoes '. The oldest shoe in the world has 5,500 years and were discovered in a cave azerbaidjannaise. A shoe is composed primarily of the bottom components, lower part which protects the soles of the feet, more or less relieved at the rear by the heel and the stem upper which wraps the foot and which comprises essentially the upper (front part of the stem of a shoe, the instep to the tip, also called slap), neighbourhoods (two parts forming the back of the stem) and tab. When the stem covers the leg (and keeps the ankle), talking about boots. Otherwise, talking about shoe. The shape of shoes can vary infinitely, especially depending on the mode. The leather is the material most commonly used to make shoes. The specialist artisan of the shoe repair is the Shoemaker, business that has strongly declined in Western countries.

The oldest shoe
The "first" shoe dates from the fourth Millennium b.c. and was discovered in Armenia. It is a piece of leather sewn to cover a front foot. The Iceman, one or two centuries later, was equipped with moccasins.
The shoes have evolved throughout the history of the costume.
In the 15th century, the beakhead shoes are long and slender. They were designed to adhere the nearest possible of the toes. This model gave birth to the toe shoes who married perfectly the form of the toes. In the 16th century, the bear's foot or duck-billed shoes are in vogue. They are very open to wide square end shoes whose end could reach 15 cm wide. They settle on the instep with a strap. In the 19th century, shoes-wear on the shoe to protect it from the dirt of the street.
