Encino Man

It may seem as though fashions and trends change by the minute, but some things are truly classics. Archaeologists from UCLA and Ireland unearthed a leather shoe in a cave in Armenia (a women's size 7) that they believe to be 5,500 years old. The vegetable-tanned cowhide is held together by a crisscrossed leather cord. Pre-dating the Iceman's shoes, it's the oldest known closed-toe style. Cavepeople wearing Ann Demuelemeester-style lace-up flats? Talk about a serious vintage find. (Ecouterre)
