Old shoes doesn't sound interesting but here are some fine examples. These shoes range from the incredibly short and tall Venetian Chopines, which had 2 foot soles for courtesans to wade through sewage lined streets, to the opposite-shaped long, skinny, medieval Poulaines, which had toes stuffed with moss. Interestingly the worlds oldest shoes come from the New World, or Oregon to be exact.
One of the favorites are the Roman shoes from the time of Constantine, whose style show just show eastern, or to our eyes, Arabic, the Empire would have felt at that time.
