Traditionally, shoes have been made from leather, wood or canvas, but in the 2010s, they are increasingly made from rubber, plastics, and other petrochemical-derived materials.
Though the human foot is adapted to varied terrain and climate conditions, it is still vulnerable to environmental hazards such as sharp rocks and hot ground, which shoes protect against.
The ancient Greeks largely viewed footwear as self-indulgent, unaesthetic and unnecessary.
Shoes were primarily worn in the theater, as a means of increasing stature, and many preferred to go barefoot.
One pair found in Europe was made of papyrus leaves and dated to be approximately 1,500 years old.
They were also worn in Jerusalem during the first century of the Common Era. The leaves of the sisal plant were used to make twine for sandals in South America while the natives of Mexico used the Yucca plant.
Contemporary footwear in the 2010s varies widely in style, complexity and cost.
Basic sandals may consist of only a thin sole and simple strap and be sold for a low cost.
Even the gods and heroes were primarily depicted barefoot, and the hoplite warriors fought battles in bare feet and Alexander the Great conquered his vast empire with barefoot armies.
