Apparently, a 5000-year-old leather-and-straw shoe design is more comfortable and useful than nearly all modern footwear. Still, it looks like the person who left some prints in Mexican volcanic ash perhaps 40,000 years ago (about 30,000 years earlier than many scientists thought there were people in this hemisphere) walked barefoot, which is still a good option if you have tough soles.

Today, if you want something to walk on in your garden, how about concrete stepping stones that look like soft couch pillows?
