This is a book for the true shoe fanatic, with pinuplike photos of beautiful or outlandish shoes throughout. There are towering Jimmy Choos, Alexander McQueen Armadillo numbers and Dsquared2 shoes with gilded big cats for platforms.

If you loved spring's "Shoe Obsession" exhibit at MFIT, then you'll rush to pick up "For the Love of Shoes". The luxury tome edited by Patrice Farameh serves as a hall of fame for avant-garde shoe designers-from extreme platform queen Noritaka Tatehana to the late Alexander McQueen. With 250 stunning photographs, the book also includes special interviews with fashion expert Mary Alice Stephenson, "God Save My Shoes" director Julie Benasra, and historian, author, and curator Valerie Steele.
