Attention Manolo

Shoes and sandals are made of soft material, so remnants of them are hard to find, but forensic examination of toes and small foot bones suggest they were worn 40 000 years ago...and examination of other ancient humans show they weren't ugly clogs either:

The (27,000 year old) Russian skeleton was also found with other individuals who had an abundance of ivory beads around their ankles and feet, suggesting these individuals likely wore some fairly flashy shoes.

Manolo would be proud.
