More Description

Many of us take shoes for granted, often forgetting or not realizing that they have had a profound influence on how fashion and culture have developed over the centuries.

Stepping Out provides a stunning insight into the world of shoes. It traces the changes that have occurred both in manufacturing and design techniques, as well as considering changing styles and fashions.

This fascinating book takes an in-depth look at the development of the shoe from the early 1700s right up to the present day. Virtually every conceivable style of footwear is examined and put into context. From the beautifully crafted shoes of brocaded silk and embroidered linen of the early-eighteenth century to the wacky and futuristic designs of the late-twentieth century -- this book has them all.
