The diversity among footwear in today’s world is one of the largest components known to man. Sandals, heels, sneakers, loafers, boots and even slippers are all apart of one of the most massive creations that benefit humans & lately even animals. As personalities and free will would have it, some people prefer one type over another in which case are often due to medical conditions, age, height or just plain the desire to be comfortable. According to photographic proof, the early centuries of human life show that the common footwear was a sandal type made by hand of whatever material could be found. However, in 1882 Jan Ernst Matzeliger, an inventor of Surinamese and Dutch descent, was best known for patenting the shoe lasting the machine, which made footwear more affordable. (Ref: Wikipedia) A huge step for footwear worldwide, shoes were also made to be more comfortable as well. The machine was also capable of bonding together materials that made for a much more pleasant shoe to wear and look good all at the same time! Matzeliger opened the door for the footwear industry to become one of the worlds leading profits of mass production as a necessity to human life.
