More Description


This work takes an in-depth look at the development of the shoe from the early 1700s. 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 18th century to the wacky and futuristic designs of the late 20th century. The book traces the changes that have occurred both in manufacturing and design techniques, as well as considering the changing styles and fashions.
