Product Overview

"Being dressed to kill shouldn't mean killing your feet! It's time to liberate ourselves from the tyranny of shoes that hobble our mobility and disfigure our bodies in the name of sexiness." Audrey D. Brashich, author of All Made Up: A Girl's Guide to Seeing Through Celebrity Hype and Celebrating Real Beauty

"In Leora Tanenbaum's Bad Shoes, the woman who exposed slut-bashing, cat-fighting, and God-reclaiming takes on women's masochistic relationship with their feet. Run (while you still can) to your nearest bookstore and save your sole." Jennifer Baumgardner, author of Look Both Ways, Manifesta, and Abortion & Life

"Leora Tanenbaum is one of the most astute and thoughtful of the new generation of feminist writers." Elizabeth Wurtzel

Bad Shoes & the Women Who Love Them is a lighthearted but highly informed wake-up call to women to make smart decisions when buying and wearing fashionable shoes. It explores the significance of shoes, the psychology behind the foot fetish, the history of foot binding, feminist critiques and celebrations of high heels, and the evolution of elevated shoes.

Illustrated throughout by artist Vanessa Davis, Bad Shoes also includes hilarious anecdotes from women who love shoes. And in case you're wondering: yes, it is possible to make good footwear decisions without sacrificing style! Tanenbaum shows you how.
