They gave us advice that can serve us all and we can do without any problem and with products which may be obtained in any shoe shop in the neighborhood. That was the idea, to give us tips that for them are obvious by the simple but that for all that we are not engaged in this are ultra useful.

10 Things we need to know:

1- It is not used two days in a row the same shoe, this does not mean that we have to have 365 different pairs, of course, but to let it rest for a day at least to make it to air and thus does not warp.

2 – when the rain grab us and get wet us shoes that we can do it is best to fill them with silk or daily paper rolls (careful with the newspaper that may stain if the shoe is clearly) these buns will absorb moisture and prevent warping of the shoe.

3- The best way to clean patent leather shoes with the product is glass cleaner that you have at home and cotton, it will give shine and protection.

The ideal is to do three applications before using it, each application with 2 days of rest that absorbs well and the last, several hours before use. Once in a while, back to apply the spray after giving one brushed.

10 – store footwear in the right way also helps their care.

The ideal is to keep the shoes in boxes by filling them with silk or daily paper to prevent them from absorbing moisture in the closet and in this way also avoid warping.


Shoes in Ancient Rome

None in the ancient Egypt, when you have the first physical testimonies of elementary and also more elaborate, footwear, the footwear industry took hold with the cultured Greek civilization. The Romans, who drink both of philosophy and way of life of the Greek people, also copied their tastes in footwear. But, as befits a people warlike and expansive, it changed it so that the different types of shoe, with their differences in shape and color, were hallmarks of the status and social class. This trend continued in the middle ages, when the extravagances and the desire to appear titles that did not have led to strict regulation with major fines from through. But let’s go by parts.

How were the shoes in the old Roman Empire?

There were all types and condition, but it was with this civilization when he started to put on each one of the members of all social strata. Formerly, slaves, peasants and poor people did not have the chance to dress up your feet.

However, have become testimonies of a very rustic and resistant shoe made of wood, as the current clogs, which were reserved for individuals located further down the social ladder.

Elite models of ancient Rome shoes

At the other end, the patricians and free men, there was a code allowing a glance know which social class was the owner of the shoes. Such was this social symbolism that certain colors and shapes were reserved to certain people, depending on their social rank. Beyond the anecdote, because he tells us as the driving of an entire society, we have:

  • Apparently it was Caligula, who did great things before becoming darn crazy, who introduced SUVs boots that are tied to the leg with ropes and had tacos or tacks on the floor in the legions. Inspiration found it in neighbouring Greece. Called caligae.
  • Patricians, the social economic and cultural elite of Rome, also wore very special Brown boots. This hue changed to red or black if the holder was a member of the Senate. In the latter case, they decorated, in addition, with the letter C.
  • The emperors, considered gods on Earth reserved hard tone purple, extremely rare and expensive, since the pigment was extracted from a snail.
  • Level ladies spared no resources to manufacture a pair of exquisite sandals with beads and high platforms. Although at home, they wore comfortable shoes style used by the lower classes, any social occasion, even a visit to the Forum, demanded this type of footwear.

The shoe is evolving with the technology and the economy

And also in the Roman Empire, when the trade of Shoemaker begins to be regulated and have a social status, according to this blog. Gradually the work is complicated and some of these craftsmen begin to innovate and create.

Look for plants and animals that make pigments for polished leathers that were the most exquisite pieces. Jewelry and trinkets, as it currently does Stuart Weitzman, were currents among the ladies of the high society.

And if in the ancient Greece began to use high platforms between the artists of the theatre, the Roman ladies also pointed to this form of get on a pair of shoes. They were very rustic and dangerous, since this type of shoe was not designed and manufactured with some elegance and security until as recently: the first decades of the 20th century. It was Salvatore Ferragamo which investigated the anatomy of the foot to do this type of easy models for every day use.

Although the heights were favored by the wealthy Roman patrician ladies, the stilettos are even later. Roger Vivier developed them to complete the New Look of Christian Dior. But that was centuries later and we are still in the Roman Empire.


Samsung Galaxy Gear: Not Even Worth to Sell As a Copy

CNN has visited a large disktrikt of counterfeit goods in China where it has completely dropped Samsung Galaxy Gear.

Samsung was one of the first major players on wearable tech-market with their Galaxy Gear, but someone would think that they were just early enough out. CNN has visited Huaqiangbei in Shenzhen district-one of the major areas in which traded with counterfeit goods of electronics.

One employee explains that you do not copy the Gear more, demand is simply too low.

On China’s fake market, you can often get a feel for which gadgets there is and will continue to be popular.You are in a market economy that works in incredible speed, “any product will be judged inside and out on a daily basis and the competition is brutal” tells Alf Rehn, professor at Åbo Akademi University in Finland to CNN.

Types of Shoes in Ancient Rome

Although the beginnings of the shoe are lost in the mists of time, the first representations of minimal sandals are to be found in the ancient Egypt, as luce Nefertiti in a mural painting found in his tomb. While the simple little shoes people used, since most of the days spent barefoot, there was an appreciation for this garment between the aristocratic elite and the Pharaohs.

The shoe in the ancient Greece

A bit of the same was happening in cities that made up the cultured Greece. Fishermen and farmers had no qualms about walking barefoot and reserved this garment for special occasions. Little by little, however, as there were greater wealth, shoes began to be essential and the trade of Shoemaker (linked to the Tanner), was made a hole in the Greek craftsmanship.

In literature and the fragments of texts that have come up to us we can know what kind of model was the most widely used and even a basic vocabulary.

From the year 1000 B.C. following the Hebrew techniques of tanning, began to make some simple shoes with leather floor and ribbons which are tied along the leg. For works of art, know that they are models that set out today, especially among the Italian designers. Ferragamo or Cavalli, to give just one example, have taken similar, but much more sophisticated, to the catwalk.

The names of shoes of the ancient Greece which has come to us

As the literature is extensive, is also the vocabulary, and to this day, we can learn some names associated with each of the models of footwear this antiquity people used. These words tell us about social classes, tastes and needs. He writes:

Cothurnus. It is perhaps the most extravagant model, but also the more imaginative, since actors of theatre were used only when they climbed to the tables. They consisted of high platforms closed on all foot and part of the calf (to walk with some security). They had a very specific purpose: soar over the rest of the public and which could see the action on the stage. Bridging the gap, they had one point in common with the bizarre models that have used Lady Gaga.

  • Krepides. It was the most simple model and appears in many ancient sculptures. Simpler an espadrille or an albarca, consisted of a leather sole tied with Ribbons that are tied enough leg.
  • Koila Upodémata. This name appears in the epic literature, since they were the models used by the soldiers. They wore spikes on the floor (very similar to the current football boots) to all kinds of dangerous roads.
  • Krepidoi. Shoes closed for winter profusely decorated with natural dyes and tacks. Social status also came to footwear, as there was a model, with tabs, which could only fit a free citizen.
  • Embades. A type of boot decorated Baroque patterned shape and colorful, mostly female designs. When these booties were white passed to be called Ninfedes.

All this vocabulary, which is not exhausted in the previous list, denoting a refinement in dress very similar to that which exists today. That led to a whole industry of hitherto non-existent footwear and a form of complex life, since artistic aspects not only weigh or fashion, also of social symbolism.

Like almost everything related to the Greek culture, the Romans also borrowed the particular way of dressing the foot of the Hellenic people.


HTC M8: Leaked Image of Cover with Extra Pocket on the Back

The extra space is supposed to be for fingerprint scanner or an extra camera for improved image quality in low light conditions.

Are we to believe earlier rumors, so will be the name of HTC One sequel HTC One +. A new image as our site has emerged, showing an extra hole at the back of the phone, just above where the camera/LED Flash will be placed …

If you dare to believe that this image actually shows the back on HTC’s next top model, it confirms one of two pending rumors. Either it is a scanner for fingerprints, otherwise it is an extra camera lens to take better pictures in situations with less light.

The location of the extra hole leads me to believe that there is no question of a scanner for fingerprints, it does not work as specifically naturally having to scan his finger at the top of the phone where the cover bows.
I also think it should not be necessary to lift his phone to unlock it, in my world, a scanner must sit on the front-what do you think?
