Ancient Greek Sandals
Standard Sandals . Although going barefoot was common -- especially for children -- the ancient Greeks also wore basic leather sandals, a type of footwear known as the carbatine. This sandal, which dates back to the beginnings of ancient Greek culture, featured a single piece of leather secured to the sole of the foot with laces, which pulled the tops of the shoes together when tied, leaving the toes exposed. This type of footwear was worn until about A.D. 1000. Basic BootsIn addition to sandals, the ancient Greeks wore a simple, boot-like footwear known as the cothurnus. Also made from leather and laced in front -- generally with red straps -- the cothurnus covered the entire foot and featured thicker soles than the carbatine. Like the carbatine, each boot fit either the left or right foot, unlike modern shoes. The Greek playwright Aeschylus, who wrote from 472 B.C. until his death in 456 B.C., made it customary for stage actors to wear this type of shoe in tragic plays to increase their stature.
(Any differences in the color of the sandals are due to the natural treatment of the skins or to the photo.)
