Certainly shoes are an essential component of every wardrobe, whether for women, men, teens, or children. As some would say, “the shoes make the outfit.” However, footwear originally began as protection for the feet. As you can imagine, those who roamed the earth hundreds or even thousands of years ago hardly cared what their footwear looked like, as long as it gave them the protection they needed.
Today, shoes still give our feet protection, however they’re designed to make any wardrobe choice look pulled together, and even to make women’s legs look longer/slimmer. In winter months, UGG’s, rain boots, snow boots, and boots in general provide warmth and protection from the elements of weather including rain, snow, ice, and cold temperatures. In spring/summer months, shoes still provide protection, although it isn’t from weather conditions, but rather stones, concrete, sticks, and other elements of mother nature that can leave your feet sore or even injured. Perhaps cavemen could go barefoot without suffering in their lifetimes, but in our modern world, going barefoot year-round simply isn’t done.
It’s really amazing when you think about it; in the beginning, shoes (and who knows what they were actually called back then) were made solely (no pun intended) to protect feet. In the Middle Ages, those who crafted shoes were called cordwainers. Even today, the soles of shoes are perhaps most important, as they protect the bottom of feet from stones, glass, rough surfaces, and even diseases that could potentially be picked up from waste/other substances on the ground. Going barefoot on occasions during summer months can be a freeing experience, but you won’t find many people who want to go shoeless year round!
