A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect & comfort the human foot while doing various activities. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time & 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. Shoes have traditionally been made from leather, wood or canvas.
