PICK OF THE WEEK
A Century of Shoes: Icons of Style in the 20th Century
"Footwear, like fashion itself, has undergone extraordinary changes in the 20th century. New materials, manufacturing and marketing methods, the deprivations of two world wars, economic depression, and periods of prosperity have all played their part in shaping the extraordinary variety and inventiveness of shoe design."
"The authors trace the story in the 20th century--from elegant ankle boots, Perugia pumps, and David Evins' shoes for the stars, to Patrick Cox "Wannabe" loafers, and Nike sneakers. They show how styles and designs reflect the changing moods and manners of the century, and have dictated the height of a heel...the thickness of sole...the delicacy of design...and the levels of practicality and comfort."
