You can find hundreds of books on shoes, what makes this one different is that it is an introduction to the ground-breaking and stunning world of contemporary footwear. Hundreds of full page, glossy pictures, of modern shoes from designers like Benoit Meleard and his heel-less, modern-art designs to Nicholas Kirkwood and his futuristic beauties leap out of the page at you. There are fashion-spread type layouts, like the image of a Pierre Hardy suede and glace kid striped wedge in a field of balloons and then there are plain white pages of shoes, accompanied by the designers drawings, all prefaced with a description of biography of the artists.
More than just shoe-porn, New Shoes introduces you to the future, to boxy designs that look more purse than shoe, booties made from delicate folds of leather and sandals of hard plastic twisted to resemble furniture. This book is essential for any shoe lover, from the Louboutin lover to the classic Chuck gal.
