540 colour & b/w illustrations This fresh new book offers an intimate look at shoe styles. More than 550 color photographs reveal foot fashion favorites and their correlation to ever-changing social factors. No other item of apparel is so closely related to the senses as shoes: the scent of leather, the click of a stiletto, the softness of a satin bedroom slipper. Is it any wonder that today shoe lovers form collector clubs, produce shoe videos, and organize sneaker subculture events? But what makes a shoe collectible?design? workmanship? celebrity association? Savor past designs and glimpse the future of shoe styles through the work of avante-garde designers John Fluevog and Danny Sullivan. The glossary, index, and value guide assist archivists, researchers, clothing dealers, designers, and dedicated shoe hounds.
