9781840915396: Fifty Shoes That Changed the World (Design Museum Fifty)

Peek into history's shoe closet with this passionate look at the most important footwear in recent times.


In the modern world shoes don't just keep your feet warm and dry-they often communicate a message about the wearer. Join the Design Museum for a look at the fifty iconic shoes of the last 150 years, beginning with Frye Boot in 1863. Learn how a doctor's ankle injury launched a boot (Dr. Martens) that became the symbol of a generation's defiance and how an immigrant Italian plucked the name Tod's out of the New York telephone directory to define the driving shoe that perfectly encapsulates the American dream.
