Shoes on Instagram

“How beautiful are thy feet in shoes…!”
Song of Solomon, 7.1

Whether it’s on #TuesdayShoesday or your favourite daily #Shoefie, we want to see your extreme footwear. Simply take a photo of your favourite shoes and tag it on Instagram with the exhibition hashtag #vamShoes.

Tell us about your choice of footwear, from their design and the materials to how they dictate your movement and what they say about you. Every month we’ll pick a favourite to win a pair of tickets to the Shoes: Pleasure and Pain exhibition and other shoes goodies.

The V&A accepts no responsibility or liability for content on third party websites.
