If the Shoe Fits

If the Shoe Fits

Tricia Thompson gave a wonderful talk in September, illustrated with slides, and took us back to Roman times to show us how footwear had changed (or not) over the years. We laughed at the colourful shoes the men were wearing and some members said they would be happy to wear them now, as I would the leather sandals. We heard of many superstitions associated with shoes, where you keep them and which you should put on first, making several members worried about their underbid storage. A definite no-no. We saw for ourselves that very fashion comes back in it’s own time and that shoes have always been a sign of status. I just wish I had realised this before I went to the meeting in my trainers.
