With shoes on every page, this illustrated history of shoe design takes us from the Edwardian Louis heel of the early 20th century through the 1940s wedge to the extreme architectural designs of Pierre Hardy for Balenciaga. Fashion historian Caroline Cox traces the evolution of 60 iconic designs, placing each benchmark type in its social and cultural context and describes the reasons for its popularity-or fall from grace-and in some cases its revival. She reviews the pioneering work of key designers and manufacturers, and highlights successful celebrity-brand associations like Kate Moss and Vivienne Westwood, and the stars of Sex and City and Manolo Blahnik. Period photos show style icons like Audrey Hepburn in ballet flats, John Travolta's Cuban heels in Saturday Night Fever, and Marilyn Monroe in seductive mules.
