Thirty-two examples of open shoes made from plant materials are described and compared with other footwear, complemented by consideration of manufacturing techniques and wear and repair. The discussion focuses on the interpretation of the technology, and the preliminary typology as well as dating the footwear.

The paper represents part XII of the series on the technological aspects of footwear, as part of the Ancient Egyptian Footwear Project (AEFP).
