Sandals are footwear that consists of a sole held to the wearer’s foot by straps passing over the instep and, sometimes, around the ankle.
They come in all types shapes, sizes, and materials. Some sandals have unique designs – like ties or buckles.
Footwear has been a key part of human life. It has enabled our ancestors to walk on land and explore the environment. We wear it as a sign of status, wealth, or as an act of rebellion. Footwear is indispensable in various civilizations and cultures.
The Word sandal is of Greek origin and means “a sole” or “a shoe”.
