Contemporary footwear in the 2010s varies widely in style, complexity and cost.
High fashion shoes made by famous designers may be made of expensive materials, use complex construction and sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars a pair.
Some shoes are designed for specific purposes, such as boots designed specifically for mountaineering or skiing.
Many moccasins were also decorated with various beads and other adornments.
Moccasins were not designed to be waterproof, and in wet weather and warm summer months, most Native Americans went barefoot.
Even the gods and heroes were primarily depicted barefoot, the hoplite warriors fought battles in bare feet and Alexander the Great conquered his vast empire with barefoot armies.
