Shoe lovers—especially vintage shoe lovers—will revel in this collection of twentieth century footwear. Over one hundred years of shoe design, explored decade by decade, are bound into Vintage Shoes. The most collectible and influential shoes from the past century are chronicled through stunning imagery and specially commissioned photography, curated by Caroline Cox. Vintage collectors benefit from the shopping, sourcing, and caring guides for vintage footwear. A glossary of the shoe designers from Salvatore Ferragamo to Vivienne Westwood will expand even the most dedicated shoe lover’s knowledge on the history of footwear. Most excitingly, Vintage Shoes features a forward by the purveyor of scarlet soles (who’s designs will soon be coveted vintage pieces in their own right)—Christian Louboutin.
