Ever wondered what fashion was like in the past, namely in the Dark Ages?
Well a pair of terracotta boots from Athens, Greece circa 900 BCE and now being housed at the Ancient Agora Museum, has given us insight into just that. And the resemblance to the footwear worn in 2016 is surprisingly not all that different.
Preserved for almost three thousand years from geometric female burials held in the agora, they were made in a perishable fabric not one known to survive over such a long period of time.
Blue and white in colour, they have a thick soul with a rounded toe and are slightly flared and open at the top, where it is believed they may have been secured to the foot with laces.
You can’t help but wonder where singer/songwriter turned fashion designer, Kanye West gets his inspiration…
