Editorial ReviewAt last a work that deals not only with the history of footwear, but also with its cultural significance. This volume helps transform the shoe from a mundane object of everyday use into something of great social and psychological power. (MANOLO BLAHNIK) Anyone who has ever spent the rent on a pair of impossibly high stilettos, has bought shoes that don't fit, or owns shoes they have never worn, will want to get their hands on this beautiful coffee-table tome. (The Times Magazine) All of them [the contributors] are engagingly passionate about their particular footwear niche. ... Erotic Connections are everywhere in this book. ... Hardly a stone is left unturned - or unillustrated - in this department. (The Times) 'Shoes: A History from Sandals to Sneakers' is footwear for thought. This lavishly illustrated collection of essays presents a global history of the humble (and not so humble) shoe as a symbol of style, status, sexuality and desire, from ancient times to the present day. (The Remix - supplement to the New York Times) An exceptionally beautiful and wide-ranging history of footwear. (The Observer)
