Colleen Hill does a fantastic job with this beautiful collection of 'feet objects.' The photographs are stunning and the history is fascinating. This is a must-have book for anyone who is interested in fashion history, design history, accessories, shoes of course, but also for anyone who just wants to look at something beautiful!

I may not be able to walk in heels over four inches but at least here I get to appreciate their beauty!

Despite the focus on "Obsession," which apparently came from the NY FIT show of the same name, this
book is very informative and well worth reading for those who have a general interest in the subject
matter. The book is well written, provides insightful historical, psychological and other perspectives
on high heel shoes and boots. In addition, the authors treat us with a judiciously chosen, exquisite
plethora of photos--some of items featured at the show. They strategically insterspersed them in the
text to make their point--if there was ever a need. It is a pleasure for the eye of shoe and boot
lovers at large and a good read!
