9 Men’s high heels
Europe, 1700s


Shoes and stockings became very important for men in the 1700s, when the tailored coat and breeches came into fashion and the focus shifted to the lower body. Boots went completely out of style in favor of these new elegant heels, now elaborately decorated with ribbons, rosettes or buckles.

7 Plaited birch bark shoes
Finland, mid-20th century


In the early part of the 20th century, women wore bark shoes daily, with cloth foot wrap inserts. They were also used as overshoes to protect more costly leather shoes against rain, mud and snow. These shoes were commonly made from Birch bark, but they could also be made from linden or lime-tree bark. Norway, Sweden and even Russia have all had their own version of the footwear. The lifespan of bark shoes is limited to about one week.

6 Chopines
Italy, 1580 – 1620


The debut of these shoes was during the renaissance, but they were still the shoe of choice for many Italian women at the beginning of the 17th century. These treasured shoes were made of wood, and either covered with fine silk or velvet. They were embellished with silver lace, tacks, and were finished with a silk tassel.

4 Padukas (Toe-knob sandals)

3 Wooden Bridal Shoes
France, late 19th century


The clogs were made in one piece of the trunks of walnut trees which formed a rectangle with its roots. Later the branches of a tree were pulled and warped in a special way to pre-shape the tree for making this type of clogs.

2 The Ballet Boot
1980s-present day


This shoe merges the look of the traditional ballet slipper with the ultimate high heel. The illusion is to force the wearers feet almost en pointe, like those of a ballerina using an ultra long heel. The Ballet Boot originally gained popularity in the 1980s, and is now available worldwide through specialty stores and online.

1 Lotus Shoes
China, from the 10th century to 2009


The Han Chinese tradition of binding women’s feet to make them appear as small as a lotus bud lasted well over a thousand years. The last shoe factory to stop mass production of lotus shoes was the Zhiqiang Shoe Factory. The factory added lotus shoes for old Chinese women who still had bound feet to its product range in 1991. In the first two years, more than 2,000 pairs of shoes were sold annually. It announced in 2009 that it will make the shoes only on a special-order basis.

Bonus Armadillo shoes


Alexander McQueen in 2010 released a set of armadillo shoes. They were then popularized by the likes of “Lady” Gaga, and other celebrities, who are not too worried about looking utterly ridiculous in public. The shoes above were the originals – many other styles have since followed.
