Bette Midler once said, "Give a girl the correct footwear and she can conquer the world." This book looks at what the "correct" footwear was, is, and has been. The chapters are divided into different types of shoes, e.g., sandals, pumps, boots, etc., and detail the careers of famous shoe designers. Full-color pictures showcase shoes from antiquity to the present day throughout the world. Quotes about shoes from celebrities, ordinary people, designers, and historical figures pepper the text. The book is full of quips, historical oddities, and facts that will inform and amuse researchers and browsers alike. (Debbie Hyman, School Library Journal)
