Overview


Women have long realized that cool shoes do not only complement the outfit, they are the whole point. From Cinderella to Carrie, we have all fallen head over heels for "the right pair" - and to hell with cost or comfort! This book explores the outer realms of avant-garde shoe design. Unfettered by commercialism, these pioneering designers give full rein to their artistic visions. These zany pieces contain an array of extraordinary forms and materials. With influences ranging from Las Vegas pizzazz and arcane tribal relics to contemporary architecture, it may be difficult to distinguish between fun footwear and conceptual sculpture.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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.

Lorna Koski,WWD,September 3,2013,.p.11.

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.
