20 Days of Tut. Day 6: Golden Sandals and Toe/Finger Stalls

Apr 17, 2020

These stunning gold sandals were just one of 42 pairs King Tut had in his tomb. About 80 pairs of footwear altogether, (just a few less than the average fashionista these days). If you’re wondering, Tut was a about a size 8 or 9 shoe. These particular golden sandals have engraved decoration that replicates woven reeds. Created specifically for the afterlife, they still covered the feet of Tutankhamun when Howard Carter unwrapped the mummy. As for those solid gold finger and toe covers, wow. Its been ages since I’ve been able to get a manicure or pedicure… so I sure could personally use them right now.
