For anyone that loves shoes or boots, this book is an absolute necessity. While David Hamsley's photos of Beth Levine's original designs (no knock-offs here) are out of this world, the insight Helene Verin brings forth, quite frankly rewrites the 20th century history of shoes. The significance of Beth Levine is clear, not only to a number of presidential first ladies, but to a multitude of Hollywood stars, as echoed in the book via insights and tributes by Harold Kota, Sonja Bata and Manolo Blahnik. As a historical reference, design inspiration and simply a coffee table masterpiece, I am thrilled to include this book in my library.

A delicious celebration of the awesome innovative design and fabrication skills and most appealing taste level of American shoe designer Beth Levine! Also a delicious celebration of the inspiring mentoring with which Beth Levine gifted equally engaging designer and author Helene Verin! The book Beth Levine Shoes enriches all the senses and illustrates how important it is for each of us to nurture and guide others as lovingly as Beth guided Helene-- and as Helene in turn lovingly nurtures and guides her mentees. It's a must-buy book for everyone you know!!

Helen Verin has managed to gather samplings of Beth Levine's innovative and inspired designs and create a book that is equal to a Levine masterpiece. I was a close friend of Beth's and through her and the Bata Shoe Museum collection I thought I had a pretty good sense of the beauty of Beth's work. Helen's collection of stories and photographs has completely awed me and I now see the complete story and the utter talent of this wonderful woman. It is easy to say that if you love shoes you will love this book - but that doesn't even come close.

A wonderful quick fix if you love beautiful things and want to live vicariously in shoe heaven. Do hope and expect that the shoe designers from Manolo to Choo will get inspired again.

Helene Verin's composition elegantly tells the story of Beth Levine's innovative life and designs. Truly, I'm not that interested in shoes but the story of Beth's creative process reeled me in and I began to study each beautiful photograph in the book looking for the the infrastructure. Beth Levine was clearly brilliant and the book is a fascinating read that taught me more about design than I learned in college.

This beautiful book is a must for those of us who appreciate the fine craftsmanship that goes into a gorgeous pair of shoes. I was fortunate to see the Beth Levine show at the Bellevue Arts Museum a few years ago and now enjoy the book. I couldn't pass up the great price, just wish I could have purchased one for a close friend. e

This book is a revelation - both about the untold story of the great American shoe designer Beth Levine and a pictorial tribute to her shoes as art. Far and away the best received gift I have found for my shoe-loving girlfriends.
