      The perfect picture book for leafing through if you want to combine drooling over gorgeous shoes with gaping at bizaare (and beautifully illustrated) historical tidbits (like the 16th-century Venetian "chopines", with platforms up to 30 inches high, which required a servant on each side to steady their wearer)!

      I'm not really into shoes. If they are presentable and sensible then they are fine by me. But coming across this fascinating encyclopedia of shoes while browsing at a library, I realized, once again, how the small things we take for granted can collectively say a lot about us as a species. This book gives a bird's eye view of how shoes have been quiet keepers of our history. It is one long parade of wonderful photos of shoes from different eras: from Persia to Egypt, Renaissance to 18th century [...]

      When you're a shoe lover and would like something light with lots of pictures to browse through, the concept of this fun, colourful little book is perfect.But even though it contains quite a bit of information on some of the most influential designers and historical background to designs, it may feel like it's lacking a bit in that regard. That said, providing a detailed historical overview is not the goal of this book.As often with fashion-related subjects, some of the descriptions seem a bit ' [...]

      This tiny encyclopaedia of 507 pages stays true to its title, and reads indeed very much like a celebration of shoes. It contains tons of different types of shoes, all beautifully photographed, and also includes some background on each shoe, including its designer and time period. Though very complete in this, the book does seem to focus most on high-heeled shoes, which somewhat narrows its scope. Shoes: A Celebration of Pumps, Sandals, Slippers & More contains nine chapters, all focusing in [...]

      How can any sane woman not love "Shoes"? It's brimming with beautiful photographs of exquisite (and exquisitely torturous) shoes, lovely historical facts, and SHOES!!! Read it once, to look at the shoes. Read it twice to learn the history of shoes/shoe-making. Read it a third time and pretend it's a catalogue and choose the shoes you would love to own and wear! Sigh shoes.

      This is such a fun and interesting book for shoe lovers! People tend to give me a funny look at first when I mention how fascinated I am with the history of shoes. But I tell you, they are secretly interested too! I find myself sharing some of these little tidbits about shoes during everyday conversations =)

      Tämä oli mielenkiintoinen katseluteos sellaisellekin ihmiselle, joka ei julistaudu erityiseksi kenkäfriikiksi. Kuvien ohella toki paljon tietoutta kenkien historiasta ja kenkäsuunnittelijoista. Opinpa tästä senkin, että tällä hetkellä muodissa olevat Converset on alun perin suunniteltu jo vuonna 1919.

      not an extreme amount of reading but I loved this book because it was a real lesson in the history of shoes. I was amazed by how much the styling comes back arou d in later generations with just a little variance. It hit nicely on the designers too.I love shoes a LOT and liked this book a LOT too!

      This is a little stocking-stuffer book I got last Christmas. It truly is a fascinating look at the history of shoes. The pictures alone are worth getting this book. I'm no fashionista and I know I can't wear most of the featured footwear, but it was still an enjoyable read.

      This is a book for a shoe fanatic and I am one. It proves that shoes have been an addiction throughout the ages and I've nothing to be ashamed of. A true art form celebrated by this collectable book. I also own it in French.

      I read this over the weekend and if your a shoe lover like me this is a cute book with fun facts and history about shoes. I also liked how it covered biographies on some of the famous designers!! Interesting book and fun to look at pictures!

      Holy Moly what a fabulous little book jam packed with amazing photos. Excellent reference as well.

    13. Cheryl on said:

      The pictures of shoes were exquisite. It was fascinating to see how similar shoes are today to shoes from a hundred years ago or more. Many of the older shoes pictured are ones I would wear.

      Reading is a strong word. Instant, bitesize if calorie-free, comfort snacking.

      Lovely book, beautiful pictures of shoes all through the ages. Interesting facts about shoe makers, shoe history. One stop shop on all interesting and beautiful things we love about shoes.

    16. Mary on said:

      Not a bad little book! It's a quick read, but it's packed full of information about shoes that even I found interesting - and I'm not really into shoes, :-).

      It was an interesting book to see how shoes have changed throughout the ages.
