We had a little down time in London and decided to pop into the British Museum before the shops opened.
I, of course, was interested in the shoes... So I scoped them out.
The Ancient Egyptians seemed to favor the thong sandal. Is it just me or does this look totally phallic? Long and skinny. HAHA
Maybe they had such long flat feet 'cause they didn't have proper arch support?
They painted their yucky sarcophagus (mummy holders) really beautifully, including details like bejeweled sandals.
They even included the soles of the shoes on the bottom. I think footwear has always been important... even before taste was invented.
Cleopatra was there!!
She looked frumpier in person. Stand up straight Princess!
Blech. Mummy feet. I do like the ankle detail though.
Ancient Egyptian jewelry...
Apparently they even made kitty mummies.
Ancient Roman warriors fought barefoot?? Crazies.
These look like ancient Crocs. No thanks.
Caeser limited edition dunks.
The Ancient Greeks were way ahead of their time... Look out Rumi, this is a serious body chain! ;)
