ANSWER: During the Middle Ages, society men wore soft shoes with extremely long points (A) and. to protect them out of doors, slipped them inside a wooden patten of similar shape. -Notice the definite heel on this patten, which held the foot up out of the mud. When the loose patten joined the upper part, we had a real shoe, but this didn't come until later. Various clumsily shaped clogs and chopines (B) came into use; and then, in the late 1500's, ladies began wearing the pantoufle, which although only an outer cover, had a much more modern look. Soon this developed into a true high heel shoe. It is said the first ones were worn by Mary Stuart in England and Catherine di Medici in France. However, it was Queen Elizabeth I of England who set the fashion for high heels. Her shoes in the picture look strikingly modern. In (D), the fashionable shoe has a narrow heel, which evolved into the extremely pointed spike heel of a fewj years ago (E). Finally (F) here's the latest shoe we could find. Seems hard to believe, but we're back to the shoe styles of Good Queen Bess! (Pat Powers of Ben Lomand, Calif., wins a prize for this question.
