Previously, the oldest known footwear was sandals made from plants found in a cave in Missouri.

(Armenia)—The discovery of a 5,500 year old size 4 shoe in the region of the "Cradle of Civilization" has Dr. Ron Pinhasi of University College Cork calling it the "discovery of a lifetime."

According to a report in The Daily Mail, the shoe was worn by an early farmer living in the mountains of Vayotz Dzor province of Armenia close to the border of modern-day Turkey and Iran.

Researcher Dr. Gregory Areshian, of the University of California, Los Angeles, said: "We couldn’t believe the discovery. The crusts had sealed the artifacts and archaeological deposits and artifacts remained fresh dried, just like they were put in a can."

Interestingly, the article stated that the previous oldest known footwear were sandals made from plants found in a cave in Missouri, dated a few hundred years after the Armenian shoe. [Source]

    I believe the oldest shoes are 8000 yrs old and were found here in America.

    Am quite fascinated by the discovery of shoes that the sons of Adam and Abraham would have worn.
    Thanks to these archeological discoveries, that much of what the Bible says is proven right.
    My wonder is how those shoes could be kept intact without wear for all those years.

    The article placed about the shoes of Adam to Abraham is indeed a breakthrough in the debate on the historicity or authentication of the Biblical history of Genesis.
    Scientists who denies the Creation history and preferr the evolutionist viewpoint really has something to work on, in order to prove their point. What is also strange is to see the amount of “Christian” scholars who tries very hard to agree with the creationist position and try to accomodate the evolutionist point of view. I am of the opinion that no true christian can really accomodate such a position. Charles

    An amazing discovery. God bless you. But someone said that, the oldest shoe is 8000 years and it was discovered in America. How about that please. We need these informations so that when we are also spreading the news we can do so with authority.

    With my simple evangelical believe regarding what Genesis the book of creation unveiled to me, God is the Creator, there was no time that He was not. He was the beginning and the end. According to the discoveries especially the shoes the sons of Adam or Abraham worn had revealed to the world at large that creation was unique in the sense that none in this world with any socalled theories, past, present or future could be over-thrown or denied Jehovah Elohim 100% unique creation. So, I uttermostly thank God scientist thus would then now be amazed with the conclusion to me as final that what the Bible said or revealed is all unique and more than true.

    Give God the Glory for the great things He hath done.
