Footwear consists of garments worn on the feet, for fashion, protection against the environment, and adornment. Poor people in impoverished or third world groups often do not wear footwear. Religious requirements may prohibit footwear (for example, some temples).

Socks and other hosiery are usually worn between the feet and the footwear, less often with sandal and flip flops (thongs). Footwear is sometimes associated with fetishism, particularly in some fashions in shoes and boots.

People who practice the profession of shoemaking are shoemakers, cobblers or cordwainers.

The oldest known footwear was discovered in Fort Rock Cavemarker in the U.S.marker state of Oregonmarker; radiocarbon dating of these sandals woven from sagebrush bark indicates an age of least 10,000 years.
