New Pictures Show The Finer Details Of The Mongolian Mummy With 'Adidas Trainers'

New pictures of a Mongolian mummy have been released following a clean.

The mummy had been buried in a grave for around 1,100 years.

Most importantly, the pictures give us a closer look at those red striped boots, which punters compared to Adidas trainers.

One fashion expert was quoted as saying: "Overall they look quite kinky but stylish - I wouldn't mind wearing them now in a colder climate.

"Those high-quality stitches, the bright red and black stripes, the length - I would buy them now in no time."

The woman, aged between 30 and 40, was also reportedly buried with a clutch bag, a comb and a mirror - as well as four changes of clothes.

Despite all this pomp, archaeologists believe she was an 'ordinary' woman.

Scientists believe she died in the Altai Mountains after suffering a grave head wound.

The remains were preserved impressively well. So well that even skin and hair can be seen on the felt-wrapped body.

"With these stripes, when the find was made public, they were dubbed similar to Adidas shoes.

"In this sense, they are an interesting object of study for ethnographers, especially so when the style is very modern."

He added: "This is only our guess, but we think she could have been a seamstress.

"Inside was the sewing kit and since the embroidery was on both the bag and the shoes, we can be certain that the embroidery was done by locals."

The woman's grave was dug up at a 9.196 ft. altitude. It is thought that the climate is what contributed to her preservation.

"As the grave was buried in a cool environment, fabric and the felt did not undergo a biological reaction," said Galbadrakh.

"They appeared as if they had been used only yesterday.

"Had they been buried in the soil, nothing would have remained."

Fascinating.
