Fascinating Facts About The Beach’s Favorite Footwear

In the summer, they're everyone's favorite footwear. Although they basically consist of just a sole and some straps, sandals have the ability to serve both as your go-to shoes for comfort and a fashion statement.

Not surprisingly, sandals are the world's oldest shoes. Archeologists have found them in Egyptian tombs and ancient Grecian ruins. The oldest carbon-dated sandal ever discovered was found in Oregon on the west coast of the U.S. It dates back 10,000 years.

Centuries later, Greeks popularized sandals, introducing style as a status symbol along the way. In Ancient Greece, the sandal a person wore said a lot about where that person fit on the social ladder. Wealthy folks could be identified by their pricey leather sandals, and admirers could determine affluence by how high someone's sandal straps climbed up the leg.

Sandals were once a shoe of necessity, and still are in many parts of the world. Throughout the centuries and around the world, people have crafted sandals out of everything from papyrus to tree bark to straw to cork. Twine and strings have been used for straps. In today's modernized countries, most sandals are crafted from synthetic materials.

From its humble beginnings as a basic foot covering, the sandal laid the foundation for shoes of virtually every style, color and fabrication to be developed.

Myrtle Beach is one of the best places to find great-looking, comfortable sandals. As one of the nation's top vacation spots, the Grand Strand is the perfect spot to spend long days at the beach in flip-flops. On cool nights, there's nothing that says vacation more than watching fireworks and then strolling around Broadway at the Beach in comfy sandals.

When you decide it's time for another pair of your favorite shoes, we make it easy to find great sandals and clogs. Broadway at the Beach shops like Rack Room Shoes and Shoes Boutique offer stylish and affordable choices in a variety of styles.

Those who just plain love wearing comfortable shoes, can head over to Comfortable Soles and discover just how sandal fashion and comfort can collide. Men and women of all ages rely on this shop to provide both the latest in fashion trends and "comfort brands."
