Amazing facts about shoe you never ever knew (infographic)

For something as simple as a pair of shoes, it’s still hard to imagine getting through a few days without them. Shoes have been around for many years as we are aware but it’s almost as though we take them for granted. Of course, we all adore going barefoot at times when on the beach, when at home and walking around on nice carpets but for the most part, we need shoes to get from A to B, to make the journey comfortable and without injury.

However, shoes have a fashion variable too and so many of us still develop a huge sense of excitement upon the purchase of a new pair of shoes. Shoes play a part in significant moments too throughout our lives: for example, when we transition from babies to toddlers they are crucial to help us develop our stand and posture and walk.
