From the Publisher:
Announcing an obsessive extravaganza of women's shoes--a chunky, irresistible, full-color book with page after page of over 1,000 seductive photos and information. A quirky, obsessive history of women's footwear, this book includes designers, famous shoes, trends, and cycles.The Marabou Mule. The Chanel toe. Jackie O's pump. Marilyn's stiletto. And lotus shoes and fetish shoes, shoes made for coronations and inaugurations, Cinderella's slipper, shoes of tulle, brocade, rhinestone, python, fish scales, and feathers, and much, much, more, including the two-foot-high wooden chopines of the 16th century and their resurgence as the platform shoes of the 1960s and 1970s.

Shoes, now with over 357,000 copies in print, is an obsessive, over-the-top extravaganza-chunky, full-color, and irresistible, it contains page after page of seductive photographs and information about women's shoes.

Created for the woman who's a passionate shoe lover-and what woman isn't?--Shoes features over 1,000 glorious photographs, most of them taken for the book. Includes Footnotes (fascinating facts about shoes); Foot Soldiers (profiles of master shoemakers from David Little to Andrea Pfister); and The Shoe that Left an Imprint, focusing on one shoe that changed history-remember Courrage's futuristic go-go boot? Shoes is, as they say, to die for.

262,000 copies in print.

Praise

Voice Literary Supplement
"From the 'footbag' to the Clergerie pump, 'Shoes'...jams 507 pages of photos, historicized bites, and factoids into a palm-sized paperback. Despite a weakness for bad pun..., O'Keeffe has both good taste and, more important, good bad taste in shoes." - Guy Trebay Winter 1996
