Shoes have always captured people's imaginations, from Medieval leather poulaines and dainty Victorian satin slippers to the iconic platforms of the 1960s and the gravity-defying designs of today. Focusing on the V&A’s world-famous shoe collection, this beautifully illustrated, hardback book explores the innovative and the elegant, the practical and the high-tech, and the way in which shoes have defined fashion moments throughout history. It features illustrated chronological chapters and includes a detailed glossary, bibliography and index.
