PHOTO of the Day: Ancient Egyptian Sandals

These sandals may be thousands of years old, yet clearly designs haven't changed much. I wonder if these hurt the wearer between the toes the way mine sometimes do? If the owner zoomed into the future and dropped by wearing them, they'd completely fit into the pile of shoes by the door . . .

Food for thought:

  • What sort of person wore them?
  • Where did they go wearing them?
  • Where did they buy them, in a market? Or were they custom ordered?
  • Are they comfortable?
