taining to the ♦
Evolution of the Shoe-
In tbe eleventh century various ma
terials were used to make oboes, tine
kid leather Iw-itig then invented and
euld for g«Mwl round *um*.
A sacred song says: “How graceful
are thy ste|»s in sandals, <> I*ru»ce*»!"
an allusion to the fact that tbe He
brew a enriched the hitherto plain foot
gear with string* of red. yellow aud
purple riblions. which they crossed ia
charming style over the gleaming
white skin of the arch of the foot.
There was a time when shoe* were
orua!uvuted with preciou* jewel*, gold
and silver embroidery studded with
pearl< and, wonderful to relate, ha }
gulden soles. Each sei and da** wore
diffurei »t*h w *. and if a nun changed
bi* that fad was ex-
urease*! «-y tU* pLi»**, Lv L—
changed hi* sbuee."
Tbe Syrian* wore yellow shoe*.
The Greek* aud ILunau* improved tbe
sandal and invented different form*
and *ha lei tu l*e worn by the different
classes. Plebian* wore black shoe*
with one riblioa; senators and patri
cian* wore red and white shoes fas
tened witi four nblwiu*. Only slave*
and pailosopber* walked barefoot. Tba
first Christian* also walked barefoot.
Iu the twelfth century l<uot* and san- |
data were wurg, the clergy nsing the
latter exclusively. The next hundred
years saw many improvements a* well
a* tbe introduction us tbe p«Mßled toe
aboe. a hu b waa afterward* a<> strongly
attacked by tbe clergy. Fashion pre
vailed and the whole eivtlued world
wore th* shoe "who** points bend.”
This povnt was like a btr<l a t«*ak—plain
peopl* wore th* Iw-ak half a fuo< long ;
mor* imjxTtant personage* extended
tbe beak to two feet, wh;le princes of
the blood added a half foot to that.
Tbe beak grew no long that it waa
fa*tene*l to the knee by a narrow gold
chain no that the wearer of three mon
rtro*itie* could walk. Thia long and
uncomfortable to* waa diacardea in a
hundred year* and the broad toe. aotne-
Umesa foot wide, eam* ia. Thea the
stilt aboe became tbe style and baela
wsre worn to high that w* cannot
understand how tbe fashionable* of
that tim* could walk at all. Th* most
l>erf*ct and graceful shoe* were worn in
th* a*vente«nth century. They wer*
of velvet and brocalev lied bed*
wer* the rag* tn the Um* of Louis XIA’,
aad during the revolution the sho* with
the buckle disappeared. Napoleon I.
introduced th* patent leather »bo* or
