Recently during the archaeological excavations the oldest shoe of the world was found in the cave named “Birds cave” near the village of Areni in the Vayots Dzor. The shoe was made of cow leather. According to scientists, it was bound just on someone’s foot. The length is 24.5 cm and corresponds to the current shoe number 37. The shoe was covered by grass inside in order to keep its shape.
Archeologists have immediately sent samples of the shoe to the universities of California and Oxford for research and results of the analysis were received 1 year later. Archeologists discovered that the shoe found by Armenian archeologists is 5.637-5.387 years old. Now the shoe is displayed in the cave where it was found.
