    Footwear

    Footwear is any kind of attire such as shoes, slippers or boots that are worn on the feet. It can be worn for fashionable reasons but mostly for protection. Shoes have always been a sign of wealth, being barefoot a sign of poverty. The romans and royalty of the middle ages started wearing decorative, in some cases symbolic footwear. They wore high heeled shoes as a symbol of wealth since it made them look taller than they usually were. In the 15th century choppiness were invented in Turkey, which were plateau shoes that were up to 20cm high and were worn by women of status to power over others.
