Shoes a Celebration of Pumps, Sandals, Slippers & More Paperback / softback


Obsessed. Vivier, Blahnik and Westwood. Two-foot-high wooden chopines of the 15th century and their resurgence as the platform shoes of the '60s and '70s.

The paradox of high heels. Uppers of tulle, brocade, rhinestone, glass, fish scales and feathers.

The Chanel toe, Jackie O's pump, Marilyn's stiletto. "Shoes" is a visual extravaganza, a celebration of women's footwear with over 1,000 photographs of shoes in glorious color.

Includes Footnotes (fascinating facts about shoes), profiles of master shoemakers, and The Shoe That Left an Imprint--remember Courreges' futuristic Go-go boots? --Backcover
