#12 Be Grateful for Shoes

#12 Shoes

Shoes are a very important tool for all of us yet still some people have some times never seen it. The times when shoes really come in handy is when it is really cold outside or they keep us from getting our feet cut up if we walk over sharp rocks or anything else sharp.

Here is the history of our Shoe 🙂

A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function. Additionally fashion has often dictated many design elements, such as whether shoes have very high heels or flat ones. Contemporary footwear varies widely in style, complexity and cost. Basic sandals may consist of only a thin sole and simple strap. High fashion shoes may be made of very expensive materials in complex construction and sell for thousands of dollars a pair. Other shoes are for very specific purposes, such as boots specially designed formountaineering or skiing.

Shoes have traditionally been made from leather,wood or canvas, but are increasingly made from rubber, plastics, and other petrochemical-derived materials.

Until recent years,[when?] shoes were not worn by most of the world’s population—largely because they could not afford them. Only with the advent of mass production, making shoes available very cheaply, has shoe-wearing become predominant.

The foot contains more bones than any other single part of the body. Though it has evolved over hundreds of thousands of years in relation to vastly varied terrain and climate conditions, the foot is still vulnerable to environmental hazards such as sharp rocks and hot ground, which shoes can protect against.

Now you know how shoes came to be, but what should you be grateful for?:

  • That a shoe make you stay warm.
  • That it can make your feet feel good.

Shoes are so amazing that we decided to produce them in the Billions in number. We decided that shoes can make us explore more, do more and be more.

Shoes make your life easier and more convenient. Think about a life without any shoes. If you lived somewhere cold for example your feet would be frozen so bad that you would have to amputate them.

You are very luck to have shoes on your feet when you need it. There are people who even does`nt have that privilege so feel GRATEFUL FOR THE SHOES YOU PUT ON EVERY DAY!!
