The Idea

Protecting the foot was probably one of the main reasons people started wearing shoes, and certainly this seems the case for the creation of the oldest leather shoe. Rugged terrain, sharp stones and prickly bushes called for high-quality and strong shoes which also needed to have the ability to enable people to cope with extreme temperature, freezing winters and long travels. But then shoes began to carry different meaning. Specific tribes wore specific leather shoes as part of the outfit to distinguish their identity and values. More importantly, certain appearance of a shoe meant belonging to a particular tribe. Identity, values and belonging became the drive of the makings of leather shoes.
The ancient leather shoes may have been made from brown bearskin and bark-string net which pulled tight around the foot to maximize most comfortable fitting, shape and design. Preservation of quality was dependable on dry and cool cave environment to the ingredients of which the shoes were made. This classic way of making and preserving the quality of leather shoes has carved its way into the making and preserving modern leather shoes. To this day, high quality modern leather shoes are made of quality leather which optimises most comfortable fitting, shape and design and kept under dry and cool temperature to preserve its quality throughout the years.
