Different types of sandals
Once upon a time there was only one type of a sandal. Plaited of woven, a sandal served as a protective means for human feet. It didn’t look appealing, but it provided needed protection and air ventilation.
With time, a sandal evolved. It served as a basis for a boot. Unbelievable as it is, this is a fact. Attach a warm stocking to your sandal and here it is – a model of a first boot ever. The time passed, and a sandal evolved even more. Now, we have so many types of sandals in terms of designs, materials and purposes that the original inventor of the very first sandal would have probably been stricken by a heart attack if only he had had a chance to drop by to the future and visit our shoes retail shops.
So, why did people invest their time and money to produce a multitude of various sandals? What’s the point? Why don’t we stick to the old good practices of our ancestors and follow the reasons of a practical mind? Well, that’s a philosophical question with many possible answers. And, it’s better to leave them to those who would gladly trouble their minds with the answers. We’d rather enjoy all those styles, designs, materials, colors, creativity and imagination! Let’s see what a sandal is like nowadays and how many forms it has taken so far. Kids can enjoy sandals from an early age. These kids’ sandals are practical, soft, anatomical, natural.
