Earth Shoes, 1970

Developed by Danish yoga instructor Anne Kalsø in the late 1950s, Earth Shoes were introduced to the American public on the inaugural Earth Day in 1970. Inspired by "indigenous Brazilians," they feature a "negative heel" that realigns the body. Another case of physiology over fashion.
