Shoes

Definition : Outer coverings for the human foot that are designed for long-term use and usually extend no higher than the ankle. Shoes typically consist of a rigid or semirigid external covering for the foot, including heels, linings, soles, and/or reinforcements; they are usually made of leather, fabric, plastic, and/or other appropriate material. Dedicated shoes intended for special purposes such as the prevention and/or correction of deformities of the feet and/or to improve their function (i.e., orthopedic shoes) are available; dedicated shoes with particular characteristics needed for a specific use, such as rehabilitation training and conductive shoes worn by healthcare workers during surgical procedures in rooms with conductive floors, are also available.
