If she were dressed in those new automatic-lacing Nikes, you might have something, but these are nothing special.

What an advancement those Nikes represent!

Who would have ever dreamed it possible to put on your sneakers without tearing your eyes and fingers off your cellphone screen?

I don't get is 1500 years ago and items are very the living. Why would a corpse be buried with a highly valued personal item like boots?
Church and state aside...the living are still walking around.

People in ancient times were commonly buried with their most treasured items. Where do the think the phrase 'grave robbing' came from?

The best leather moccasins money could then buy. For the same kind human feet they have around today. Double stitched and everything.

Nice find, thanks for brining it.

I noticed that double stitching too. What I couldn't tell from the pictures was whether the stripes have some utility or were strictly ornamental.

Oh yah, they look very stylized and fashionable, even after being buried for millennia…

I wonder what our tennies will look like after that long?

You can't buy marketing like that
What a cool coincidence.

So I don't get it. Boots didn't exist 1500 years ago?
