Once upon a time, there was a king who ruled a prosperous country. One day, he went for a trip to some distant areas of his country.
When he was back to his palace, he complained that his feet were very painful, because it was the first time that he went for such a long trip, and the road that he went through was very rough and stony.
He then ordered his people to cover every road of the entire country with leather.

Then one of his wise servants dared to offer the king a simple solution.
What did he tell the king?
