The Wonderful Invention of Shoes
By: Marcus Houston and Ja'Tionna Mongomery

What was the purpose of shoes?

The first shoes were invented purely as a method for protecting the human feet. The human body as a whole is delicate; the feet in particular needing good protection. Even though initially shoes were worn for protection purposes, the majority of people could not wear shoes because of their high manufacturing costs.

Who invented the shoe?

As far as the history of shoes goes, there is no exact timeline as to when exactly people started wearing them. Egyptian civilization shows some pictorial records of footwear, which dates back to around 5,000 years. And in Mesopotamia, in around 1600 to 1200 BC, people living in the mountains and hills are believed to have worn a special pair of soft shoes.
