Found in Armenia, this 5,500 year old leather shoe is the oldest in the world. Made from a single piece of cow-hide, its preservation is so perfect that archaeologists originally guessed it was only about 600 or 700 years old. Only after radiocarbon dating did they discover how far off they were. The level of detail preserved is simply astonishing: ancient grass found inside the shoe was probably used for warmth. Even its shoelaces are still in nearly pristine condition. (repin)
