What is thought to be the world's oldest shoe, a preserved 5,500 year old cowhide piece of footwear that was discovered in a cave in Armenia, is seen in a photo released after its discovery by an archaeology team from University College Cork June 9, 2010. The shoe, dating from 3,500 BC, is the equivalent of a women's European size 37 (US size 7), but researchers say it could have fit a man living at that time. (courtesy Reuters..)
