Shoes and Footwear

The term shoe derives from the Antique English scarp and the Old English scoh, but can also be found in the Olf French term skoch and the Old German scuh

The story of the footwear has its origins already in the prehistorical epoch, when the necessity to cover and protect the sole of the foot from dangers on the ground made the primitive man produce the first types of shoes, realized with plant fiber or not tanned leather, that were hold together with a system of braided laces. Over time changes were made not only because of the modernity, but also thanks to fashion and style, so that different models of shoes during different epochs and tendencies were elaborated, every single one with its own characteristics. 

Today indeed the shoes are generally made of leather, synthetic leather, fabric or other materials and compound of an inferior part, that touches directly the ground and is called sole, and a superior part of variable length (in base of the model), that is called upper material. Every model of shoes usually has an own name, based on its unique characteristics to distinguish it from others. While a pair of women's shoes called pumps is characterized by its deep opening on the foot's neck, a pair of ankle boots is characterized by the open upper material and the laces, that are closed on the foot's neck. The same thing counts for the men's shoes, that are often given names of famous personalities or important places, like the model Oxford, wich gets its name from the oxonian, a short half boot, open at the sides, that where popular at the university of Oxford, or also the  model Derby, which gets its name from the Prussian general Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, who used them for his army. 

Together with every type of shoe there is a different mode of interpretation of fashion and style, so the phrase "Tell me which shoe you wear and I tell you who you are" seems perfectly right.
