Sandals, shoes, boots, and slippers at their most exotic and beautiful fill this small compendium. Featuring over 100 full-color photographs, this volume divides the footwear by historical period, and a brief description of the function and aesthetics that inspired the design introduces each segment. The fascinating examples, including a pair of Venetian clogs on stilts over 20 inches high, a Japanese gaming shoe with the sole mounted onto a spiral spring, and the Pope's ruby-red slippers, are accompanied by descriptive captions.
