Wow, I can't believe there is a shoes age 5,500 years? It's amazing! Too durable because it endure until this days even the climate change anytime. I think it needs to preserve this items so that the next generation will still see the oldest shoes in the world.

That was a very interesting article! I can't believe they even had leather straps to hold it on. Seeing it wasn't tossed aside or thrown outside the cave, maybe this was the first slipper ever made, and was only worn inside the cave, lol! Who knows! Plus, they even cushioned it with grass, amazing to me. Great information, Thanks!
