Boots are of ancient origin: they were worn by the Ancient Greeks, who called them embas, embates or edromis depending on the material used and the function the boots had. In the Roman period, they went by the name of ocreae and were worn only by hunters, or by farmers in cold weather. In the Middle Ages and up to the beginning of the sixteenth century, boots reinforced with mesh and iron plates were in use. Then in the Renaissance, it became fashionable to create different types of boot, long and tight-fitting around the leg or short, wide at the top and embellished with large flaps. In general, these boots did not have a heel and in bad weather were worn with another shoe. From the seventeenth century, the boot became a practical form of footwear: military, hunting and horse riding boots were mainly worn by men, unlike ankle boots, which were worn by women.
