Some truths about Shoes

  • Boots are inspired by royalty

In 1837, shoemaker Joseph Sparkes Hall created special boots with elastic sides for the queen and the style evolved into what are now known as Chelsea boots.

  • Wedge is a test

Wedges were born due to a steel shortage in Italy in the 1940s, which prompted designer Salvatore Ferragamo to experiment with new materials and styles.

  • Men wear high heels first

It is important for men to ride horses to have a heel to keep their tripod steady.

  • Sneaky sneakers

The term “athletic shoe” became popular in the late 1800s because people can move lightly thanks to the rubber sole.

  • All sides are the same

For many years, there was no right or interest in shoes until a Philadelphia shoemaker first made the distinction.
