Encyclopedia of Shoes
Shoe is more than a footwear. It conveys our character, statement, taste, mood, and perspective. When buying a favorite shoe, many of us remain unaware of the story and rationale behind creation of the footwear we choose. This book presents the foot types, innervation and pressure points, disorders and deformities. It recaps shoe legends, guides to the shoe museums, and extends 75 styles of shoes, boots, espadrilles, albarcas, sports-shoes, dance-shoes, oxfords, brogue, derby, clogs, orthopaedic and medicinal shoes, boat and diving shoes, space and military shoes, chopines, loafers, sandals, sneakers, and moccasins from the fashion giants like Adidas, Allen Edmonds, Calvin Klein, Capezio, Chanel, Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin, Cole Haan, Dolce & Gabbana, Dr. Martens, Jimmy Choo, Ferragamo, Galliano, Givenchy, Gucci, Karen Scott, Mancini, Marc Jacobs, Nike, Oscar de la Renta, Reebok, Rockport, Rutherford, Pacelli, Pierre Cardin, Prada, Puma, Saint Laurent, Sonia Rykiel, Timberland, Tod's, Valentino, Versace, Zanotti, ZARA, and many others. Shoes are sorted in alphabetical order based on the style and not on the brand. Each presentation outlines the purpose, history and materials of making each particular style -- accompanied by 148 color and grouped illustrations of the modern brands. Welcome to our shoeland!
