Shoes were first worn by our primitive ancestors around 8000 BC to protect the feet from sharp rocks, rugged terrain, sand and cold while searching for food and shelter.
Here are a specimens of the first man made shoes.
Below is what might be the predecessor to the stiletto. This “shoe” was worn by
Turkish women of the Ottoman empire to elevate them above the
hot floors of the communal bath. (wonder if the guys wore them too?)
They are made of wood with inlaid Mother of Pearl. Fast forward to the present and my fabulous virtual shoe collection is stocked by Google and Facebook friends as well as a shoe vending machine and a DIY project to store your shoes in real time!
Tell me in a comment what would motivate you to use a shoe vending machine, I’m still trying to think of one. lol
Too many shoes and not enough storage space??? easy solution with
this DIY project made from crown molding.
…or you can purchase this shoe wheel for under $100.00, also a great option for storage;
just”spin” the wheel : )
We’ve come a long way in footwear, so let me share my virtual shoe closet.
Do you think these chains rattle when you walk? hmmm!
I’ll wear these when I go to see Tom Cruise in the “Vampire Diaries.”
WOW! All these Legos! I’ve got to arrange a play date!
Well I do like working with metal, so I guess that’s why these are here.
Red, red wine, I guess you’ll have to drink some to get enough courage to wear these!
Here comes the Bride, but it’s too late I’m already married!
…and of course your pot bellied pig!
