This is believed to be the world's oldest leather shoe. It is about 5500 years old and was made of tanned cowhide.
A newspaper article about the shoe states, "It could have fit a small man or teenager, but was likely worn by a woman with roughly size-7 feet. (That, according to www.celebrityshoesize.com, would be slightly roomy for Sarah Jessica Parker, whose Manolo Blahniks are size 6.5, and a tad tight for Sarah Palin, who, during the 2008 campaign, sported red “Double Dare” pumps by Naughty Monkey, size 7.5)."
