Not completely simple history

In several civilizations, the stone people on the Alcatera Prairie are “wearing” high boots, the earliest evidence of human wearing shoes; the first pair of shoes in human beings, there is no inference, decades ago, in Xinjiang landland The “sheep skin woman boots” unearthed in the river was born 4000 years ago, and the “first pair” shoes found in human beings. The archaeologists have been introduced to the hunting method and food source of the landlord.

Clothing can reflect a nation’s civilization. The Beta Shoes Museum in Toronto is the world’s largest footwear museum, which shows the shoes that are unearthed during the ancient Egyptian pyramid. It looks like today’s sandwich slippers, but the footsteps of the footwear are not agree with them. Any contact, “In different civilizations, two similar shoes may have a completely different use.” The pair of sandals woven by reed grass and papyrus, completed the summer application of the first foot in the history of human history, such as the design of the neck of the general sleeve, giving a sense of modernity.

The “sandals” in ancient Greece, inherited Egypt, but showed a change in life. The material of the shoes begins to be comfortable with a hemp or felt, and the leather on the foot has also begun to appear a routing and ornaments. At that time, people have a new understanding of the United States, even if the wagon is used, there is also a practical decoration such as laces.

Although its shape is simple, it represents some identity, king, clergy and nobles to put it on the foot. It is indeed unlike today’s seaside slippers, playing liberal character. It seems that from the beginning, the shoes symbolizes the class, which is the difference between slavery and freedom. The archer makes “Roman Sandals” exaggerated, and advanced leather and gold and silver decorate the symbol of power.

In the same period, the shoes are also divided into categories such as “舄, performances, 屐, boots and 屣”. For the class, the comfortable performance and 舄 are civilians, and the carved complicated is the exclusive society. The products, most of the boots have been assigned to soldiers, and the grass or numbness is considered to be a criminal, and the slaves and prisoners are considered. In addition to the classification, the classification of China’s shoes seems to have intended to emphasize its functionality. In a sense, the class gives different shoes different social mission.

After the silk is incorporated into the Western Region, the shoes become truly gorgeous. Byzantine Empire is close to the East, the shallow shoes is like the cloud of the Tang Dynasty, in today’s view, this is integrated into the Eastern aesthetic shoes, and there are some similar to Laofu shoes. The jewelry on the shoes has a typical Byzantine feature, from the painting of the “Otto II’s Gospel” representing the typical medieval painting style, we can peek to the shoes wearing the churches of each level, speculating their status.

One is often mentioned, is the French “Sun King”, this man who has inhevented the high heels inherently inheaving the legend. However, in the history of shoes, the British King George 3 is a name that is ignored. During the long ruling period, he witnessed a series of military conflicts with the big European continent, where he was conflict, he will set a position in “right angle shoes” in the past thousand years, this sudden actions make a lot People start “find the position of feet”.

Perhaps it is because “the shoes are left”, let the anti-law of George 3 win with the Waterloo, the Waterloo, Napoleon. Rumor, Napoleon admire the art and clothing of the Roman Empire, especially with the front of the knee, before, before, he will polish the boots with the mixture of grease and wax, keep the necessary bright light, this kind of cumbersome move seems to be destined. The defeat. In 1815, the British army took a defeat in Waterloo defeated Napoleon, and the Duke of Wellington, who was leading the British army, only said a word, “our soldier wear the best shoes in Europe.” This sentence is not exaggerated, because defeating the Wellington and Brucher of Napoleon, and finally became a naming of two shoes, Most shoes designed by Brujar were served by the war officer. That is a kind of tongue. The ankle boots in the upper ribbon; Wellington designed a soft-stuck small leather boots, soldiers can wear it in the day, and it can easily step into any occasion at night.

Thanks to the distinction between the left and right foot, people’s clothes become rich, and the shoes have also completed evolution. The costumes of the court aristocrats and opera actors are becoming more gorgeous. The shoes on their feet present more and more obvious M-shaped. This shoe without a buckle is not used to have the name “simple and orthodox” name, so This shoe named “Opera Shoes” has become a prototype of today’s shoes.
