About this title


The authors have worn shoes for a total of more than 75 years. Let them show you: How shoe sizing standards got started. How to get a better fit. How various shoe lacing patterns can improve the fit and comfort of your shoes. Indications of quality and comfort in shoes - and why quality and comfort are not always synonymous. What makes a shoe an oxford, a blucher, a mule, or a Mary Jane. The five types of running shoe and which you should wear. The relative advantages of EVA and PU in the midsole of an athletic shoe. The three types of orthotics. Signs that designer shoes are authentic. Which designer grew up on a banana plantation. Which designer has a trapeze in his office. Which shoe company's success was largely a result of a member of the Communist party who inherited the business. The irony (a rare appropriate use of the word!) in the meaning of the Nike "swoosh." Why you may want to add petroleum jelly, nail polish remover, a tube of toothpaste, and a tooth brush to your shoe care kit. When and why you may want to put your shoes in the freezer... and much more.
