Crafted from a single piece of cowhide about 5,500 years ago, it was still in perfect condition, right down to the laces when the researchers found it in a cave in Armenia
Worn and shaped by the wearer’s right foot, the shoe was found in a cave along with other evidence of human occupation. The shoe had been stuffed with grass, which dated to the same time as the leather of the shoe – between 5,637 and 5,387 years ago
The shoe found in what is now Armenia was found in a pit, along with a broken pot and goat horns.The Armenian shoe was small by current standards – a Woman’s size 4 – but might have fit a man of that era.
