However, the material did not work well for a long period of time and would wear out soon. Soon after that, a number of sandals started being made, which consisted of the wooden sandal that began in India, rice straw sandals from China and Japan and many more.
However, today’s sandals have evolved to a great extent today, and come in such great variety which our ancestors would not have imagined.
